Alpine Flowers

Alpen Flora - sideview

I discovered this book by chance in a local junk shop. Despite being over 150 years old, the illustrations have maintained their original bright colours, still looking crisp and fresh and as though the flowers were picked yesterday!

I wanted the flowers to appear be growing in profusion, spilling out of the confines of their book. There’s something remarkably peaceful about working with flowers – even when they are made of paper!

Rather unusually, the book is in three different languages: English, French and German.
