Penny Black. The Book of Pressed Flowers. Copyright 1988. Published by Simon & Schuster. First Edition, Full-color, Hardcover in good condition with slight wear on jacket.
The Book of Pressed Flowers is a practical guide to pressing, drying, and arranging flowers, seeds, leaves, ferns, and grasses. Every illustration inspires to create and forage from the garden. Each project offers practical advice on how to use pressed flowers in decorating, greeting cards, perfume, pictures, and textiles. My mother and I made many of the projects from our garden while I was growing up. I still press flowers to decorate cards and envelopes. This is a gorgeous and inspiring book.
