Wild Flowers

Inspired by childhood journeys with her botanist father, leading gardening and cookery expert Sarah Raven travelled the length and breadth of the British Isles – with photographer Jonathan Buckley – to find 500 of the UK’s most beautiful wild flowers. We met the challenge of creating and designing this incredible opus of Britain’s botanical beauty. Flowers are organised by habitat, with each section culminating in a full-spread gallery showcasing their beauty in the landscape through the changing seasons. The book has subsequently been reprinted in a reduced-size version in both hardback and paperback editions.
