Chezar, along with the photography of Ms. Michaels, has created a
beautifully illustrated and well written book about flower arranging.
I began reading the book, expecting the standard flower arranging kind of book - dry and detailed. Happily, as I read on, I discovered Ms. Chezar's work to be the pleasant antithesis of dry and boring. This book begins with the artistic approach to floral arrangements and Ms. Chezar's approach and philosophy of floral arrangement. Her approach is one of combining natural found elements (leaves, branches, etc.) with flowers. Quite a welcome change from the usual flora composition.
Her instructions for creating floral arrangements and compositions are very clear, concise and well illustrated by Ms. Michaels' lovely illustrations. Even a klutz such as myself could create a lovely floral composition after reading this book.
Very well done and an enjoyable read!
