Spirit of the Rose (signed copy)

£9.99

Product description

Spirit of the Rose is the fulfillment of a dream for David Lloyd whose professional world has been centred on floral photography. He has worked with many talented individuals who have introduced him to a wealth of flora of which the most inspirational has – without doubt – been the rose.
His innate sense of the artistic, coupled with his love of nature and flowers led him to produce this photographic book on his favourite subject. The empathy engendered by David and his co-author Annie Beagent in the creation of this book has been the magnet in drawing together the talents of all rose lovers. Each have willingly shared their knowledge with the reader, enabling David and Annie to illustrate their passion for the rose with beautifully styled, stunning photographs.
Research into the rose, its geographical and historical past, its place in myths and legends, its practical uses in the kitchen and in medicine, its literary connections, its value as a plant in gardens large and small, has been a joyful discovery for all those involved with this Spirit of the Rose. Many unexpected tales and historical anecdotes have been gleaned serendipitously through meeting diverse and talented breeders, growers, arrangers and lovers of-the genus, Rosa.
Generous-spirited contributors and the many friends and acquaintances involved with the project, have given this book a rare breadth of vision of how the rose has been used, valued and revered throughout history and includes a charming and eclectic grouping of stories, poems and practical advice.

Slight creasing and rubbing to an otherwise very good dust wrapper. Signed by the Author on premlim. Boards, binding and pages are all excellent.
