For botanical enthusiasts and Carolyne Roehm's devoted fans comes a luxurious, oversized volume featuring Carolyne's luminous flower photography so transcendent that readers have never seen flowers like this before
In this gallery of a book, Carolyne Roehm shares her passion for flowers in hundreds of exquisite photographs. Inspired by Irving Penn's iconic Flowers published in 1987, Carolyne has carefully photographed close-ups of her gorgeous blooms and paired them with images of her arrangements, table settings, and her abundant gardens at Weatherstone, her eighteenth-century Connecticut estate. Roses, tulips, daffodils, lilacs, iris, clematis, lilies of the valley, peonies, dahlias, and annuals-are immortalized in this exquisite book. Throughout, Carolyne writes about the flowers with unparalled emotion and attachment, reflecting on their very personal meaning to her, her journey cultivating them, and why she decorates with them as she does. Lush and luxurious, Flowers is one of the most significant and personal volumes in Carolyne's publishing career.
