A Garden of Ordinary Miracles: An Alphabet Book


A Garden of Ordinary Miracles: An Alphabet Book Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A veritable illuminated manuscript cataloging the A to Z of natures everyday wonders to create the perfect gift book. More than a masters-eye view of nature, and infinitely more than a simple illustrated A to Z book, A Garden of Ordinary Miracles catalogues the breathtaking beauty and variety of flowers in full bloom, in glorious hand-drawn illustrations. Anyone who loves nature will be instantly transported to an alphabetical landscape where everything from azaleas and zinnias bloom all year long. Each overgrown spread bursts with gorgeously rendered full-color and pen-and-ink representations of flora (and fauna) whose names begin with a particular letter. Prance through P, overrun by peonies and poppies, or wander around Ws wisteria and water lilies. With so much to look at and enjoy on each page, readers will be enchanted and entranced by the intricately detailed and whimsical nature of Zakanitchs art. Packaged as the ultimate gift for adults, gardeners, or those sitting at their knee, this garden book is nothing short of a miracle.
