First published in 1937, this volume contains a classic guide to flower arranging, concentrating on a contemporarily modern style. Within it, the author has attempted to set out the fundamental principles of modernistic flower arrangement, illustrated with a series of helpful pictures showing the various flower-pieces dealt with. This timeless guide will appeal to both florists and a gardeners alike, and it would make for a fantastic addition to collection of allied literature. Contents include: "The Phoenix of Modern Art," "Plant Material," "Containers," "Form," "Color," "Composition," "Table Decoration," "Christmas Arrangements," "Description of Various Flower-Pieces," etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on the history of gardening.
