From the ‘Luxe Nature’ gift-line series from Reed New Holland, this is a beautiful collection of artworks and inspirational quotes about orchids from around the world, from sun orchids and slipper orchids to duck orchids and the spectacular Queen of Sheba.
Thanks to a seemingly endless range of shapes, colours and forms, orchids have fascinated people for as long as anyone can remember. Their bright petals and sepals, which have a habit of bringing a splash of colour to a forest or meadow, have inspired artists and writers alike for many centuries, even millennia, while in recent decades ornamental species of orchids have brightened millions of our homes.
This stunning book is intended as a celebration of the relationship between orchids and people. Delightful watercolour paintings and other artworks are coupled with quotes about orchids, or just about life in general – some very well known and others less famous. So prepare for a journey around the world, exploring the many aspects that we love about these remarkable plants.
