Non-Fiction

The flowers in BOTANICA emanate colors and textures so rich that you'll be tempted to lift them off the page. Some of the close-up images are eye-popping in their extreme detail, while others are kaleidoscopic compositions of synesthetic color. From the exotic – angel's trumpets, passionflowers, and pincushions – to the familiar – lilies, roses, and begonias – the flowers Schatz photographs have never looked quite like this before, and yet it is their natural beauty that shines through every page of this sumptuous, oversize volume. Annotations at the back of the book, accompanied by miniature reproductions of the full- page plates, identify each variety and provide both common and Latin names. Schatz's unique presentation and photographic style make this a compelling gift for both flower lovers and connoisseurs of fine photography.
