Synopsis 
  
This companion volume to "Wild Flowers by Snowdon" offers a combination of Snowdon's photographs and a lyrical text, each complementing the other to highlight the more unusual facets of the subjects. Many of the images Snowdon has included in this diverse collection of photographs are far from conventional. In addition to the traditional edible fruits gathered for winter preserves and potions he has chosen forbidden fruits, whose tempting exteriors conceal hidden poison, and false fruits such as the oak apple. All have been photographed simply and starkly against a white background, rather than in their natural surroundings, and treated in the same way that Snowdon treats the people he is famous for photographing - illustrating and emphasizing their individual forms to best advantage, capturing the shapes that most intrigued him.
