The tulip is undoubtedly one of the favorite flowers of Europeans. Therefore, it deserves its own title in the outstanding "Floramour" series. This series is aimed at all flower enthusiasts and dedicates a photo book specifically to one variety in a new and refreshing way. In a unique manner, authors Karin Greiner and Simone Braun manage to capture and convey the graceful character and aesthetics of the tulip in "Floramour: Tulips/Tulpen".
In a magnificent homage, the photo book "Floramour: Tulips/Tulpen" pays tribute to this beloved flower. In addition to beautiful photographs, this coffee table book offers its readers an engaging all-around view of this powerful ornamental plant with informative texts and detailed drawings.
Tulips are commonly considered a symbol of prosperity and luxury. In the 17th century, these floral beauties attained a particularly high status in the Netherlands and sparked a veritable tulip mania throughout Europe. At times, the flower bulbs even took on a currency-like character. Tulip breeding became a respectable endeavor, and it is hardly surprising that this led to an impressive diversity of over 4200 tulip varieties.
The informative photo book succinctly discusses the cultural history of the plant. Tulips symbolize beginnings. They are among the heralds of spring in nature and definitively mark the end of winter with their arrival. Even after being cut, they continue to grow and embody vitality like few other flowers.
For all tulip fans and flower lovers, "Floramour: Tulips/Tulpen" is an inspiring portrait and a fitting gift that not only dazzles with stunning images but also boasts a wonderful visual presentation. For those who already own previous "Floramour" titles, adding "Tulips" will stylishly expand their collection.
