Illustrator Angie Lewin and author Christopher Stocks celebrate wild flowers and their place in the landscape with The Book of Wild Flowers.
Christopher Stocks reveals the interesting and unusual history and science of wildflowers, including guidance on where they can be found and tips for identification. The book will focus on twenty-one of Lewin’s favorite wildflowers, and include reproductions of her paintings and illustrations, many created specifically for the book.
Sustaining the long-held affection for the British countryside, The Book of Wild Flowers will appeal to anyone who loves British wildflowers, as well as fans of Lewin, who is widely admired for her alluring images of the natural world.
Angie Lewin studied fine art at the Central School of Art and Design and has since become a highly regarded painter, printmaker, and designer. She is a member of the Royal Watercolour Society and the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers. She has published two books: Angie Lewin: Plants and Places and The Book of Pebbles.
Christopher Stocks is an author, journalist, and trainee bell ringer. His first book, Forgotten Fruits, a social history of British fruit and vegetables, became an unlikely success, with renowned horticulturist Monty Don choosing it as his favorite book of the year. He is also the coauthor of The Book of Pebbles.
