Format: Paperback
This beautiful book, so affordable in its paperback edition is the unabridged republication of Flora's Feast: A Masque of Flowers, first published in 1889. It contains 40 color illustrations by the English illustrator and painter Walter Crane (1845-1915). Crane was a leading designer of Art Nouveau textiles and wallpaper and his Art Nouveau stylings are seen in these whimsical and romantic illustrations. Children as well as adults will enjoy this beautiful book which opens with Flora, the Goddess of Flowers waking the flowers from their slumber. "The sullen winter nearly spent, Queen Flora to her garden went, To call the flowers from their long sleep, The year's glad festivals to keep." Attired in Greek-styled drapes, sandals, tunics, and gowns the various flowers, beginning with the earliest crocuses and snowdrops, begin a parade across the pages of this book that proceeds through the seasons from summer through autumn and finally back to winter. Each season's favorite flowers are accompanied by quaint poetic descriptions written by Crane and bear the look of familiar blossoms incorporated into their costumes. We are fortunate indeed to have this rare treat available to us once again. Don't miss it.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I ordered this book because I have long admired the artwork of Walter Crane. I waited anxiously for it to arrive, and was absolutely thrilled when it finally did! These works are stunningly beautiful! I find I do not have adequate words to describe the way they transport me magically to another place...a place of magic and wonder...
This book is magnificent. Why the age range is so young is beyond me, on the product recommendation, I think that it may be a mistake.While Walter Crane's beautiful work is suitable for the entire family, it should not be dismissed as a 'children's book'. I own playing card's and Tarot card's that feature many of these same images, and am thrilled to have this good sized book with them done in a larger size ( the better to admire!)
I cannot recommend this book highly enough ! I will be purchasing more to give as gifts! You wont be disappointed with "Flora's Feast: a Fairy's Festival of Flower's"! It's something I will cherish and save for my entire life.
