Who would think that I'd scoop this book off the shelf as soon as I saw it for the first time? Well pretty much anyone who knows me.
Such a glorious cover and such a glorious concept. Paris in Bloom is gorgeous to behold. Largely pictorial it is the work of specialist flower photographer (who knew that was a job? but it sounds fabulous) Georgianna Lane.
There are four chapters, Parks and Gardens, Floral Boutiques, Market Flowers and Floral Displays. All gorgeous.
Georgianna often pairs floral depictions on walls, architecture or ribbons with real blooms. It works beautifully.
We all love Paris in the Springtime and Paris in Bloom is a terrific source of inspiration and solace for those times when you can't be there yourself.
