Harold Feinstein is one of the very few photographers I have known, or have been influenced by, with the ability to reveal the familiar to me in a beautifully new, strong, and honest way." (-W. Eugene Smith)

    just....great

    this book isn't just about flowers its about the emotion and the attitude they have. The pictures are the most vibrant i have ever seen on flowers. I live in the mid-west and dont get to see any of these flowers. This book is a treat.

    Beautiful Coffee Table Book

    I purchased this book as a gift to an avid gardener who was thrilled with it. A nice change of pace instead of getting the routine how-to books. Although pricey, it is very well done and lovely to look at.

    It's a breath taking book

    I absolutely fell in love with the beauty of the flowers in this book. It had everything from roses to poppies to sunflowers&dandelions to orchids and irises. It really is a gorgeous book.
