A compendium of floral wonder, Petal reveals the colors, details and unique sculptural beauty of nature’s most remarkable creations.
Botanical artist Adriana Picker has curated specimens from all over the world to celebrate through her stunning illustrations, accompanied by writer Nina Rousseau's words on the folklore, fame and meaning of both favorite blooms and herbaceous curiosities.
Petal features over two hundred flowers from twenty-seven plant families – from elegant roses to otherworldly orchids and magnificent magnolias – as well as a dedicated chapter for unusual specimens.
