Book Description 
  
"Snowdon's wild flowers are arranged images taken in the studio, where the photographer hasn't held back from bending a stem or plucking off an aesthetically offending petal in pursuit of the perfect picture. So, in one sense, these are invented flowers. They evoke, too, the traditional role of flowers, interpreted and idealized as geometric constructs, in the history of ornament. In this way, Snowdon's wild flowers are neither an accurate botanical record nor an environmentalist's plea for their preservation. Rather, they are explorations of form, line, color, and texture which move strongly in the direction of graphic textile design. They recall inevitably the work of people like William Morris. The result of this exploration of part of the realm of nature cannot be described as anything other than delightful." -Sir Roy Strong, from the Foreword- --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
