The Language of Flowers: A coloring book guide to the Victorian art of Floriography (Paperback)
Learn the language of flowers while you color and relax
Do you believe that nature speaks to us? Or rather, that nature can speak for us? The Victorians did. A yellow carnation expressed disdain while a red tulip declared love. In the Victorian era the practice of floriography was a means of sending coded messages through small bouquets ("tussie-mussies"). This flower craze resulted in the publication of hundreds of floral dictionaries in the 19th century. These dictionaries have inspired The Language of Flowers Coloring Book. In the pages of this book you will find 45 high-quality coloring pages featuring individual flowers, their meanings and common colorings. You will also find a quick reference glossary of flower meanings at the back of the book.
