Flowers and Their Meanings~book

Delve into the world of Victorian floriography to uncover a hidden language of hundreds of flowers. From the ranunculus (which means "I am dazzled by your charms") to marigold (portraying despair), discover these blooms' meanings, common names, and cultural significance. Plus, with an organized index, crafted by theme, you can craft coded messages to your loved ones! Find out why two canary-yellow roses (jealousy and infidelity) featured in a famous bouquet or share some honeysuckle (bonds of love) with someone special. As for celebrations? Why not opt for angelica ("inspiration") and columbine ("resolved to win") for a friend who's come out on top?

Karen Azoulay pairs nineteenth century botanical drawings with electric photography, creating a one-of-a-kind flower dictionary with a contemporary, artful feel. With a foreword by Kate Bolick and a helpful sentiment-based index, Flowers and Their Meanings is both a beautiful volume and a practical guide to incorporating the language of flowers into your own life.
