Winter is not generally considered a time for the study of nature, but many beautiful plants and flowers flourish in the colder months. Cicely Mark Barker's exquisite Flower Fairy watercolours celebrate the wonderful variety of flora that can be seen in winter. The Flower Fairy illustrations, originally painted between 1920 and 1950, are renowned for their unique combination of naturalism and fantasy; the plants are observed with complete botanical accuracy and the fairies perfectly capture the unselfconscious grace of young children. This new deluxe edition of "Flower Fairies of the Winter" uses modern printing techniques to reflect the outstanding craftsmanship of Cicely Mary Barker's artwork. It includes a biographical introduction about the artist, botanical notes and information on each plant, and a section on the changing meanings and uses of plants over the centuries.
