Excellent source book This book of black and white line drawings has a wealth of flower designs in several sizes and shows those flowers from several different angles. Most common American flowers are represented and the index makes a particular flower easy to locate. I have used it for pen and ink drawing, china painting, and embroidery designs but it would be equally useful to woodworkers or oil painters. The renditions are detailed enough to get a firm understanding of the flowers structure and the shading, while subtle, would be helpful to a new student who might have problems with light and shadow. It is one of the most used source books in my collection.

GREAT book for flower designs, illustration, tattoos, anything! This is a very nice book, done in a coloring-book type of style, but wonderful for artists who would like to have a basic element of flower design and vignettes. It would be helpful for many artistic forms, from tattoo applications to painted art, to tile making or screen printing.If you would like flower designs, and want a pretty, flowing, cohesive look to your organic elements, this book would be a great addition to your collection. I know I will refer to it many times in the future, along with my collection of flower photographs and magazine clippings of gardens for color reference.
