Synopsis: Language of flowers book contains original floral art, classic floral poems and texts, and extensive floral dictionaries. Literary Calligraphy paintings incorporate flowers and hand-lettered poems or texts relating to that flowers origin, name, cultivation, and habitat. Two floral dictionaries (, entries) are organized by flower and sentiment. Appendix includes American, British, and French dictionaries from Victorian-era books. Complete index.
From the Publisher: Susan Loy’s Literary Calligraphy® art is known worldwide, so that her first book had to meet the high expectations of her thousands of enthusiastic collectors. Flower the Angels’ Alphabet is a special gift book that is both beautiful and useful.
The book and its exquisite illustrations are produced on heavy, acid-free paper with a deluxe cloth binding. Each illustration stands alone to lend an uncluttered feel to the book. The illustrations were produced over a period of 20 years as part of Susan Loy’s popular “Language of Flowers Collection” of Literary Calligraphy® prints.
Scholarship and thoroughness were goals for the text of the book. Each of the 28 individual flower chapters give consistent literary and botanical information about each flower. The 2,900 entries in the floral dictionaries are the most complete and detailed of any historical or contemporary language of flowers book. There is a section on poetry of the language of flowers; poems from Longfellow, Browning and others discuss and/or mention the language of flowers specifically. A 50-page appendix directly links each literary flower to its corresponding botanical classification. A complete bibliography and index are included.
