During his 2012 residency at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, French artist Jean-Michel Othoniel (born 1964) delved into the archives of the magnificent garden that Isabella Stewart Gardner, the first American woman to graduate with a degree in horticulture, cultivated around her residence. Othoniel examined the museum (where nothing has been moved since its owners died) and photographed the flowers in the tapestries, ironwork, architecture, furnishings and paintings, in such masterpieces as van Dyck's "Portrait of a Woman" with its innocuous rose, Piermatteo d'Amelia's "Annunciation" with its majestic lily and Bartolom� Bermejo's "Saint Engracia" with its enigmatic palm. This giftworthy volume presents his art-historical ABC of these flowers, from Acanthus to Zea Mays.

“A single flow’r he sent me, since we met. All tenderly his messenger he chose; Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet—One perfect rose.” —Dorothy Parker Welcome to the mysterious and sometimes scandalous world of the language of flowers. Since the days of Queen Victoria (and earlier the harems of the Middle East) flowers have allowed lovers and friends to express themselves without saying a word. In Loves Me, Loves Me Not, author and illustrator Peter Loewer explores the fascinating history of floral messages. In this book you'll find intriguing plant lore, unexpected historical connections, or simply an opportunity to connect with a beloved in a unique way. Confess unrequited love with a daffodil. Show happiness with primroses. Wish someone luck with a four-leaf clover. Make your declaration of love not with a rose, but with a tulip! With intriguing stories and stunning full-color illustrations, Loves Me, Loves Me Not, introduces you to flowers that have been conveying message for centuries. As Loewer says: "The language of flowers is a delightful idea. In the world of cell phones and mass communications, sending a simple bouquet that tells a tale of love and affection seems to be a great idea whose time has come again."
