No flower, whether in a garden or as a cut flower in a vase, is as well-known and as varied in shape and color as the tulip. Once the most expensive flower bulb in the world, this ever-cheerful member of the Lily family is defined by its vibrant hues and simple sophistication of form. In this newly-designed classic of floral photography, Peter Arnold captures the tulip in all its beauty and diversity. From familiar to exotic tulip varieties, his exquisite tulip pictures are supplemented with new texts, including a Foreword by Sir Elton John. A winning book for all gardeners, flower lovers, and fans of art and flower photography.
