Ryland Peters & Small. Sept. 2023. 208p. ISBN 9781788795517. $45. CRAFTS
This refreshing book combines connecting with nature, floral arrangements, and do-it-yourself tips. The stunning photography of gardens in the countryside, coastal areas, forests, and cities showcases the variety and beauty of flora that can be displayed in arrangements throughout every season. Award-winning landscape designer Hunter adds a personal touch by talking about her own dreamy garden. Her tips are designed to help readers create displays that reflect their tastes and the available flowers and foliage in their regions. Hunter urges readers to pause to take in the beauty around them and to balance purposeful design with the principle of arranging cuttings in their natural state. An inventory of materials is provided to recreate the examples found in the do-it-yourself sections. There is also a list of suppliers for those who need to find shops in both the UK and the U.S.
VERDICT A lovely, easy-to-follow book for readers looking for ways to capture the allure of nature around them. Great for craft sections and art students.
