Synopsis

Tulip Anthology by Ron Van Dongen

The Tulip Anthology is a comprehensive celebration of the world's most passionately beloved flower. Bold contemporary photos by Ron Van Dongen (author of Bloom) are paired with text and art inspired by the tulip over the course of the last millenium. While there are several photo books on the tulip, as well as best-selling histories of the flower, there is nothing that combines contemporary and historical image and text in the stunning way The Tulip Anthology does. To this day, tulips inspire obsession. Home gardening is one the rise, with the number of home gardens jumping 40% and seed companies seeing a 25% increase in sales in the past two years. More than just a book of pretty photos of tulips, this volume is, true to its name, an anthology of art and writing from the past thousand years that documents humanity's fascination with this flower. Loads of rich content packed into a huge gorgeous package make this a steal at $60--many books of this size and depth would come in at a hundred dollars or more.
