Noted illustrator and fabric designer Charlene Tarbox brings sophisticated pen and ink techniques and design ingenuity to 136 floral motifs presented here for copyright-free use. A wide variety of plants and flowers are represented, spanning the seasons from early spring crocuses to autumn chrysanthemums. You'll find popular flowers in a number of horticultural varieties, native wildflowers, houseplants, and shrubs.

These crisply rendered designs lend themselves to a myriad of decorative applications: needlework and craft projects, illustrations, borders, frames, and corner cuts for advertisements, stationery, book covers, menus, invitations, almost anything that would be enhanced by an elegant floral touch.
