  • An unabridged miniature edition of Botanica Magnifica
  • Featuring 250 stunning photographs of rare or exotic plants and flowers by the 'Audubon of flowers,' Jonathan Singer
  • Part of the Tiny Folio series
First published as an oversized clothbound volume in 2009, Botanica Magnifica has received widespread acclaim from the scientific and artistic communities. In the words of an ARTnews critic, Singer's flowers and plants, photographed "in large scale and exquisite detail, emerge from the shadows in a manner evocative of Old Master paintings."



Now Abbeville is to offer this masterwork of botanical photography as a pocket-sized hardcover book, in their trademarked Tiny Folio format. Mirroring the design of the larger edition, this little volume is organised into five alphabetically arranged sections:
(I) Orchidaceae, presenting the full diversity of orchids;
(II) Florilegium, portraying the complexity and beauty of flowers;
(III) Proteus, illustrating plant forms perfectly adapted for survival;
(IV) Zingiberaceae, a tribute to the fascinating ginger family and
(V) Botanicus, a selection of beautiful and bizarre specimens from the Smithsonian's research collection.



Each pictured plant is accompanied by a clear and accessible description of its botany, geography, history, and conservation.



With its marvellous reproductions and fascinating text, the Tiny Folio of Botanica Magnifica is a charming miniature version of one of the most impressive volumes of natural history ever published.
