Item description for Flowers (Cube Books) by Valeria Manferto...
From Zen gardens on the grounds of Buddhist temples to the herb gardens of the Middle Ages and the quintessential flower gardens of English country houses, we have had an ongoing mission to tame and refashion nature. This new addition to White Star's bestselling CubeBook series celebrates the diversity of man-made landscapes, depicting through more than 500 photographs, the huge variety of gardens around the globe. Flowers and Gardens CubeBook takes readers on a delightful tour of the finest gardens on five continents, including the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, the Huntington gardens in California, Filoli in Florida, the Boboli Garden in Florence, the Royal Botanical Garden in Kew, Vaux le Vicomte and Versailles outside Paris, and the Keukenhof flower show park in The Netherlands. Spectacular panoramic photographs capture the stunning landscapes and meticulously tended flower beds of these gardens, while close-ups demonstrate the jewel-toned glory of every kind of flower under the sun. The gardens in these pages will inspire gardeners, artists, poets, and anyone who appreciates nature's bounty. Valeria Manferto De Fabianis is the photographer of several books including Cats CubeBook and Mountains CubeBook (White Star).

Reviews - What do customers think about Flowers (Cube Books)?
A gem of a book Sep 12, 2007
This small book has the most comprehensive photographs of flowers I have ever seen. Every page is a joy to open to . Colorful and breathtakingly beautiful.
A visual feast May 29, 2007
This cube-shaped book has more beautiful photos of flowers from around the world than books two or three times as big and twice or three times the cost. I pick it up and start anywhere and am immediately captured by the intensity and artistry of the images. I've been giving it as birthday gifts and people love it.
