Rate this:
Global adventurer Robbie Honey spends much of his time searching out and deconstructing some of the world's most exotic flowers. This book features more than 90 specimens collected from as far afield as the Malaysian rainforests, the African veldt, and an English churchyard. Each specimen is meticulously laid out and photographed as soon as it is picked to create miniature plant portraits. Robbie's fresh approach gives traditional botany a contemporary edge. Arranged by colour, the plants are highly accessible as well as beautiful to look at. Botany, at last, has been transformed for a modern audience.

I assumed this book would be about the structure of plants and what makes them up, as the cover (and sub-title!!) purports, however, this man manages to assert his status as a white African on every page ! What??? Talk about the plants bro!! The plants !!
