SKU: 42632

This beautiful little book is all about flowers and their meanings. Pages 7-47 contain a list of alphabetically ordered flowers and their meaning. On pages 48-60 the list is reversed. This way you can search emotions and see which flower is most appropriate for it. Pages 61-79 are filled with small poems about flowers by famous writers. The last page shows a list of illustrations. This book can be seen as a must have for well-mannered Victorian women. If you followed the book you could make the perfect flower arrangement for every occasion. Kate Greenaway (1846-1901) illustrated the book with medallion-like pictures and small individual ones. Her beautiful Victorian scenes and soft pastel-like colours fit the content of the book perfectly.
