7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Future designer on March 14, 2007
Format: Hardcover
This book is a typical course book. It is good in that it has a lots of information that one needs to learn about the flower industry. It has step by step instructions on how to design arrangements and gives you a view of the industry and how to find a job to running your own shop. What I do not like about it is the BLACK AND WHITE PHOTOS. 99% of the photos are black and white. And, though the copyright is 2002, many of the photos look like they are from the 1960s-80s. I think for the price, the photos should have been updated for better visual effect.
