By: Vita Sackville-West (Author), Graham Rust (Illustrator)
112 pages, 25 colour illustrations
In Some Flowers, originally published in 1937, Vita Sackville-West took the novel step of choosing 25 of her favourite flowers and describing their appearance, origins and characteristics – and the best ways to grow them – in a series of brilliantly expressive pen portraits which retain their vitality over 70 years later. In this fresh edition of Some Flowers the exquisite watercolours of Graham Rust provide a perfect marriage of words and images, clearly demonstrating at last the accuracy and ingenuity of Vita Sackville-West's descriptions. This glorious second flowering of her personal, erudite and poetical book will not only delight her many admirers but also guarantee her reputation with a new generation of gardening enthusiasts.
