About this title

Synopsis:

We?ve all seen red roses, blue irises, and yellow daffodils. But when we really look closely at a flower, whole new worlds of beauty and intricacy emerge. Using a unique process that far surpasses conventional macro photography, Robert Llewellyn shows us details that few of us have ever seen: the amazing architecture of stamens and pistils; the subtle shadings on a petal; the secret recesses of nectar tubes.

Complementing Llewellyn?s stunning photographs are Teri Dunn Chace?s lyrical, illuminating essays. By highlighting the features that distinguish twenty-eight of the most common families of flowering plants, Chace gives us fascinating insights into the natural history of flowers, such as the relationship between pollinators and floral form and color. At the same time she gives us a deeper appreciation of why and how flowers have become so deeply embedded in human culture.

Whether you?re a nature lover, a gardener, a photography buff, or someone who simply responds to the timeless beauty and variety of the floral world, Seeing Flowers will be a source of enduring delight.

From the Back Cover:

Flowers are an essential part of our visual experience?their beguiling colors and shapes are why we plant them in our gardens and bring them into our homes. But there?s a whole other dimension to flowers that our eyes ordinarily can?t detect. This hidden world is what Seeing Flowers reveals. Through Robert Llewellyn?s dazzling, innovative photographs and Teri Dunn Chace?s engaging essays, we enter into a fantastic realm where petals become the walls of richly hued caves and pistils and stamens turn into bizarre, extravagant sculptures. Seeing Flowers opens the door to the wealth of beauty and information found in the familiar plants of our gardens, fields, and roadsides.
