When I talk about my favorite books, it seems that the authors pay me))) I really have a lot of books about flowers, about plants, about art, about color, about style, about clay, about painting - a huge library! Now I will tell you about my most favorite books about bouquets that inspire me insanely.
The first, and most important, book of all books - The Flower Recipe Book, by Alethea Harampolis and Jill Rizzo of Studio Choo. Here you can find 100 ready to made recipes for beautiful stylish arrangement fresh cut flowers, which you want to take and dazzle at once - they are so beautiful! In this book you will find good photos of flowers, and you can carefully consider all the details, and the flowers themselves are arranged in alphabetical order, so there is no confusion with the names))) Cool book, I recommend.
The same authors recently released another book, Branches & Blooms, about everything that blooms, or rather about flowering branches. Personally, I really like this theme, I often use blooming branches in my works, and this gives a special tenderness to the composition.
And yet, I adore minimalism, and the art of ikebana is very close to it.
Ikebana The Art Of Arranging Flowers by Shozo Sato is a great book on this subject! It contains many interesting ideas that inspire to create new compositions, to experiments, to creativity.
Being inspired of beautiful pictures, and I do not understand how I get a whole flower bed, and on the clock 5 am. Creativity takes it's time.
