Summer Reading - Nico de Swert

Actually, this book, Living With Flowers by Belgian floral designer Nico de Swert, is about summer looking - not reading! With almost no text, it is filled with gorgeous picture after picture of stunning arrangements.

The book is organized by color themes. Dense, modern, classical, sculptural forms dominate the pages.

Don't go to this book expecting tips and hints about mechanics and how to, or even for thoughts on de Swert's own process, but use it for your own inspiration. I don't know that I have the patience to make a sphere of pink hyacinth blossoms, but this book certainly makes me wish to give it a try!
