For heaven's sake, do not buy this edition of Betsy Clebsch's work. It is a ghastly product, amateurish. Instead of stunning and rich photographs, the pictures look as if they were created by an inkjet printer, set on dark, using the worst quality paper. The colors and details of the plants are indistinguishable. A plant described as "sparkling blue" has barely a hint of blue on a background of mud brown. It is shockingly bad. I unfortunately ordered it and opened it past the return window. I shall write to the publishers (who I see no longer publish or carry this book) to complain. If they will not refund my money or assure me this is a mistake and send a new book, I will have to donate it or throw it away. It is next to worthless, and I am washed with disappointment and disgust every time I have tried to look at even the text.
