Whether it’s a simple bouquet in the kitchen or a vase with a single rose on the bedside table, flowers always add warmth and color to any home. Bursting with vivid photos and charming hand-drawn illustrations by author Diane Wagner, this newest Victoria volume ushers readers into the wonderful world of flowers. Arranged by season, from the new blooms of spring to winter blossoms, it takes the mystery out of flower selection and arranging. An introduction covers hardy, delicate, garden, and other florals and foliage, as well as palettes and basics like bows and wiring. More than 30 projects provide challenges at all skill levels: there are even wedding arrangements for the most experienced! Make a fall-themed door swag and topiary; fill a country jug with summer roses; and create a festive Christmas tabletop centerpiece. Bouquets, boutonnieres, mini flowerpots, pomanders, and wreaths will entice would-be arrangers all year round!

Taking a global, multicultural, social, and economic perspective, this work explores the diverse and colourful history of human attire. From prehistoric times to the age of globalization, articles cover the evolution of clothing utility, style, production, and commerce, including accessories (shoes, hats, gloves, handbags, and jewellery) for men, women, and children. Dress for different climates, occupations, recreational activities, religious observances, rites of passages, and other human needs and purposes - from hunting and warfare to sports and space exploration - are examined in depth and detail. Fashion and design trends in diverse historical periods, regions and countries, and social and ethnic groups constitute a major area of coverage, as does the evolution of materials (from animal fur to textiles to synthetic fabrics) and production methods (from sewing and weaving to industrial manufacturing and computer-aided design). Dress as a reflection of social status, intellectual and artistic trends, economic conditions, cultural exchange, and modern media marketing are recurring themes. Influential figures and institutions in fashion design, industry and manufacturing, retail sales, production technologies, and related fields are also covered.

Eventually in six volumes, The European Garden Flora is the definitive manual for the accurate identification of cultivated ornamental plants. Families, genera, and species are described, keys are provided, and guidance is given on the cultivation of each genus. It is designed to meet the highest scientific standards, yet the vocabulary is kept uncomplicated to make the book fully accessible to the informed gardener and landscape architect, as well as the professional botanist. Although based on European flora, the series will be an extremely useful reference on cultivated plants throughout the world.

In 1837, while charting the Amazonian country of Guiana for Great Britain, German naturalist Robert Schomburgk discovered an astounding "vegetable wonder"--a huge water lily whose leaves were five or six feet across and whose flowers were dazzlingly white. In England, a horticultural nation with a mania for gardens and flowers, news of the discovery sparked a race to bring a live specimen back, and to bring it to bloom. In this extraordinary plant, named Victoria regia for the newly crowned queen, the flower-obsessed British had found their beau ideal. In The Flower of Empire, Tatiana Holway tells the story of this magnificent lily, revealing how it touched nearly every aspect of Victorian life, art, and culture. Holway's colorful narrative captures the sensation stirred by Victoria regia in England, particularly the intense race among prominent Britons to be the first to coax the flower to bloom. We meet the great botanists of the age, from the legendary Sir Joseph Banks, to Sir William Jackson Hooker, director of the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, to the extravagant flower collector the Duke of Devonshire. Perhaps most important was the Duke's remarkable gardener, Joseph Paxton, who rose from garden boy to knight, and whose design of a series of ever-more astonishing glass-houses--one, the Big Stove, had a footprint the size of Grand Central Station--culminated in his design of the architectural wonder of the age, the Crystal Palace. Fittingly, Paxton based his design on a glass-house he had recently built to house Victoria regia. Indeed, the natural ribbing of the lily's leaf inspired the pattern of girders supporting the massive iron-and-glass building. From alligator-laden jungle ponds to the heights of Victorian society, The Flower of Empire unfolds the marvelous odyssey of this wonder of nature in a revealing work of cultural history.
