Renowned New York–based floral designer Lewis Miller presents a fresh take on the arrangement and display of flowers—discussing the approach to and the inspiration behind his lavish creations.Lewis Miller’s first book features lush, naturally lit still lifes of his beautiful arrangements and compositions. The designer, who has a background in horticulture and landscape design, describes his work as “sumptuous nature.” Organized by key factors that are considered for each piece—color, composition, movement, shape, and texture—the book is elegantly illustrated with Don Freeman’s painterly photographs and explains, arrangement by arrangement, the thoughts and motivations that guided the process. Vivid images of brightly hued poppies, roses, hydrangeas, and tulips explode on each page. Miller also discusses his sources of inspiration, notably seventeenth-century Dutch still lifes. The images and words will give the reader a profound insight into the artistry of flower arranging—providing the impetus to create floral works of one’s own.Additional information will cover ways to handle and arrange flowers, prolong the life of an arrangement, and incorporate flowers into special occasions or simply into our everyday lives. The luxurious display of flowers will inspire and delight decorators, gardeners, brides-to-be, and connoisseurs of beauty.
