The popular British florists Gillian and Alan Wheeler are recognized for their creativity in the field of floral art. This photograph album of their masterful work is filled with beautiful arrangements that will inspire every reader. Whether it is a wedding bouquet of roses or a decorative feature for a home or garden, this volume will charge the reader’s imaginative powers. The authors discuss the principles of floral design before they provide examples of their work. Their combinations of floral materials are admirable and artfully arranged; and each component in a photograph is identified. They comment on the proper placement of their work in order to alert the reader to the importance of site selection. The book is not just a book filled with beautiful flowers; it is a floral design course in book form.
