Flowers & Plants Of Southeast Asia: Sketches & Paintings
This brand new book by artist and illustrator, Lorette E Roberts is a travelogue of her sketches, comments and paintings of “FLOWERS and Other Things from around Southeast Asia". The book is spiced with anecdotes and facts about many of the species. For example, she includes the date of the Mangrove International Day, the poignant history associated with the National flower of Singapore and some facts on Supertrees. Whilst this book has no claim to be a reference tome for tropical - or any other - plants, it is a record of Lorette's observations of nature and people during her many travels in Asia including Singapore. She covers a wide variety of “flowers" - from the simple morning glory to the beautiful tree peony, from gorgeous Heliconia and Strelizia to daisies, and from notes on Sir Stamford Raffles to Scarecrows! ..... but don't forget to track down her trademark snail - lurking on each page!
