The techniques of collection and pressing flowers, and ideas on how to make pictures from the flowers.

Both of these recent imports are entries in an increasingly crowded field. Donaldson's book, the more substantial of the two, reflects her expeience as a teacher of dried flower workshops in England. She includes projects for posies, pomanders, potted arrangements, topiary, and wreaths as well as general information on drying flowers. Each project has a list of materials, step-by-step instructions, and an excellent color photograph of the finished product. Eckhardt's book, part of an Australian publisher's series, deals with pressed flowers in flat, two-dimensional arrangements framed under glass. She gives hints for pressing and mounting flowers and instructions for making a press. With only a dozen actual projects, this book does not have enough material to warrant purchase by a library. Neither of these books can compete with earlier, more comprehensive titles such as Susan Conder and others' The Complete Flower Craft Book (LJ 5/1/94), which is a much better buy for public library collections.?Constance Ashmore Fairchild, formerly with Univ. of Illinois Lib., Urbana-Champaign
