About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and German

Very little is known about the Green Florilegium. Neither signed nor dated, it is generally attributed to the German painter Hans Simon Holtzbecker and originates from the library at Gottorp Castle in Schleswig. The album now resides at Statens Museum for Kunst, Copenhagen. Recently The Green Florilegium was painstakingly restored, allowing the delicate illustrations to come to new life in their original colors. This beautiful volume reproduces the original work of 400 botanical illustrations in its entirety. It also includes an introductory essay and captions with basic information on each flower. Published for the first time, this lovely book is a must-have for lovers of botanical illustration and a sublime example of the art of conservation.

Media reviews

"Eternally fresh [...] so beautiful it deserves its own gazebo."
The Wall Street Journal

"The illustrations here are finely wrought and wonderfully colored [...] Each page is meant to be lingered over in this splendid and sprawling lap garden."
The New York Times

"It's the perfect coffee-table book – leaving it open to any page is like having a permanent bouquet of flowers in your space."
– Martha Stewart – Home Design

"If you only own one book of botanical illustration, this should be it. An exquisite exploration of the natural world [...] each of the 400 illustrations is a joy to behold."
Art of the Times
