DINING TABLES CONTEMPORARY DESIGN

Published to accompany an exhibition at the V & A, this book shows diverse examples of flower drawing, a fascinating art which appeals to our aesthetic as well as scientific sense. In addition to European illustrations in all media from the fifteenth century to the present day, there are works from China and Japan. Explorations of why the pictures were made, and their function in treaties, manuals or catalogues, make this much more than just a collection of beguiling images.
