American Wildflowers: A Literary Field Guide


We’ve a thing for flowers*—especially when arranged by graphic designers and illustrators we admire. We’ve long admired the work of Leanne Shapton and are delighted to make this beauty available. (And we’ll be hosting a publication party on November 15.) (And now a small exhibit of work from the book.) This volume collects poems, essays, and letters from the 1700s to the present that focus on wildflowers and their place in our culture and in the natural world. Editor and K. Small friend Susan Barba has curated a selection of plants and texts that celebrate both botanical and cultural diversity. A total stunner. 

*Did you know K. Small Gallery is housed in a former flower shop?
