‘The Flower Book’ is a charming volume, containing poems, stories and anecdotes about the wonderful array of British plants and flowers. It was written by Constance Armfield, and illustrated by Maxwell Armfield, and contains four sections: ‘The Meadows and Coppice’, ‘The Hedge’, ‘The Garden, ‘The Pool’, and The Herb Patch.’ In these sections, one can find stories and drawings regarding Snowdrops, Violets, Daffodils, Primroses, Buttercups, Bluebells, Honeysuckle, Tulips, Roses, Iris, Nasturtium, and many more. Maxwell Ashby Armfield (1881 – 1972) was an English artist, illustrator and writer. He was linked to the Arts and Crafts Movement, and studied painting in Paris. In 1909, he married the author and playwright, Constance Smedley, and from that point on, the two became close collaborators. This book is no exception, and showcases their combined knowledge of design, illustration and text. Maxwell Armfield’s drawings are presented alongside Constance Armfield’s ‘Flower Book’ – so that the two further refine and enhance the other.

But the violet-eyed love child of King Richard's half brother had vowed that no man would ever rule her heart. Until she saw the face of the Devil himself in her crystal ball--the dark, brooding knight who would kill to make her his own.

A wickedly handsome warrior who lived by blood and the sword, Falcon de Burgh wanted to wed no woman--until he laid eyes on the exquisite Jasmine, and he vowed to possess her, to teach her all the wondrous ways a man could love a woman, no matter what it might take to conquer her fiery, unyielding heart. Falcon knew only blind, reckless passion as he swore to tame, at the risk of his life...The Flower. From the Paperback edition.

My Struggle as A Woman Artist

Through the Flower was my first book (I've since published nine others). I was inspired to write it by the writer and diarist, Anais Nin, who was a mentor to me in the early seventies. My hope was that it would aid young women artists in their development and that reading about my struggles might help them avoid some of the pitfalls that were so painful to me. I also hoped to spare them the anguish of "reinventing the wheel", which my studies in women's history had taught me was done again and again by women, specifically because we have not had access to our foremothers' experience and achievements-one consequence of the fact that we still learn both history and art history from a male-centered bias with insufficient inclusion of women's achievements. I must admit that when I re-read Through the Flower, I winced at some of the unabashed honesty; at the same time, I am glad that my youthful self had the courage to speak so directly about my life and work. I doubt that I could recapture the candor that allowed this book to reflect such unabashed confidence that the world would accept revelations so lacking in self-consciousness. And yet, it is precisely this lack that helps give the book its flavor, the flavor of the seventies, when so many of us believed that we could change the world for the better, a goal that has been-as one of my friends put it-"mugged by reality". And yet, better an overly idealistic hope that the world could be reshaped for the better than a cynical acceptance of the status quo. At least we tried-and I'm still trying. Perhaps I'm just too old now to change. Judy Chicago 2005

Brigg lives in a small, grey room in a large, grey city. When he finds a book in the library labelled ‘Do Not Read’, he cannot resist taking it home. In it, he comes upon pictures of bright, vibrant objects called flowers. He cannot find flowers anywhere in the city, but stumbles instead on a packet of seeds. This sets off a chain of events which bring about unexpected results, continuing to grow and bloom even after we have turned the last page. John Light’s enigmatic story is told with utter simplicity, but resonates long after we finish reading this book. His increasingly optimistic vision is hauntingly captured by Lisa Evans’s beautiful and whimsical illustrations.
