Publisher Comments:

Exceptionally drawn in a realistic fashion and awash in spectacularly rich colors, this one-of-a-kind art book—masterfully reprinted from a rare and costly edition—combines the perennial appeal of flowers with the art of Japanese woodblock prints.

Nothing expresses the richness and vigor of life like blooming flowers. A stunning showcase of 120 full-color plates, this specially chosen collection features beautiful Eastern and Western botanicals that will delight flower lovers, artists, designers, and devotees of fine art. Admire such familiar and unusual blossoms as the poppy, rose, anemone, cyclamen, delphinium, water lily, lupine, passion flower, allamanda, phlox, dahlia, petunia, tulip, freesia, pansy, begonia, and many more beautiful blooms!

Tanigami Kônan (1879-1928) was a genius at the art of woodblock creation and color gradation, and he is still celebrated as one of the finest artists of this highly specialized technique. Captions and a complete index are included in this distinct keepsake edition.
