The Modern Flower Press

£30

A contemporary, beautifully illustrated book on flowers, flower pressing and arranging.

In The Modern Flower Press, innovative florists Melissa Richardson and Amy Fielding (owners of JamJar Flowers) share their abundant knowledge of flowers and tell the stories that surround the traditional art of flower pressing, reinventing the craft into a very modern form that celebrates the colour, shape and beauty of flowers.

The Modern Flower Press is a storybook full of entertaining facts, myths and legends about flowers. Melissa and Amy explain all aspects of the history of pressing flowers, from its origins to the present day. They show you how to choose the right flowers for pressing, how to prepare and press them, and share ideas for projects and artworks to display them in all their perfectly preserved glory. From their own small and large-scale commissions to lovely ideas that you can make at home by following their clear, full-colour illustrated step-by-step instructions, there are designs here to make best use of your favourite garden or wild flowers.

Packed with inspiring ideas, quirky facts and glorious photography, this celebration of the botanical world is the ideal book for gardeners, artists, crafters, and anyone who is interested in learning about flowers. It is the perfect introduction to the lost art of flower pressing.
