Picker, Adriana

A compendium of floral wonder from Adriana Picker, an Australian illustrator, artist and designer.  Petal: The World of Flowers Through an Artist’s Eye reveals the colours, details and unique sculptural beauty of nature’s most remarkable creations. Now in a special edition with a beautiful new cover. Her work encompasses the diverse fields of publishing, fine arts, film and advertising; at the heart of her work is a lifelong passion for flowers, which she manages to find wherever she goes.

Adriana Picker has curated specimens from all over the world to celebrate through her stunning illustrations, accompanied by writer Nina Rousseau’s words on the folklore, fame and meaning of both favourite blooms and herbaceous curiosities.

Petal features over two hundred flowers from twenty-seven plant families – from elegant roses to otherworldly orchids and magnificent magnolias – as well as a dedicated chapter for unusual specimens.
