The Complete Book of Dried Flowers by Malcolm Hillier & Colin Hilton
The Complete Book of Dried Flowers is the most practical and the most beautiful book
ever produced on the subject. It contains a complete guide to the techniques of drying and arranging flowers- and also gives advice on how to grow flowers in the garden for drying.
The introductory section includes an exquisite photographic colour-by-colour guide to all the flowers that can be used in arrangements, as well as other plant material such as grasses, leaves, fruits and seedheads.
Thereafter, the book is packed with examples of arrangements that the authors have created, bringing new style and creativity to a long-established craft. There are schemes for different setlings and seasons, for special occasions and on different colour themes - all guaranteed to lend colour and interest to interiors throughout the year. And there are clear step-by-step instructions for making the displays, as well as the secrets of design and technique that make for arrangements with a truly professional finish.
Hillier and Hilton believe there are few rules of flower arrangement that cannot be broken
- this book will give any reader the confidence to follow in their footsteps, and a wealth of ideas to make their home a more beautiful place to live in.

Foxed / Foxing - age-related brown or brown-yellowish spotting of the paper caused by a chemical reaction over time.
Sunned - damage done to a book cover or dust jacket caused by exposure to direct sunlight.
