Written by biologist and microbiologist, Anna Maria Botticelli, the book Orchids provides a straightforward and comprehensive overview of the most exciting orchid varieties such as Phalaenopsis, Polystacha, Cymbidium, Paphiopedilum, Robiquetia, Pleurothalis, Oncidium and Dendrobium.
Through his lens, the skilled photographer Fabio Petroni (Ancona, 1964) captures the orchid in all of its many forms, positioning the plant against a white backdrop in order to emphasize how this remarkable and exotic flower needs no embellishment for its natural beauty to be perceived. Petroni’s work will leave all who view it mesmerised by the majesty of this marvellous creature of the plant world.
The book is a very useful reference guide for florists, retailers, wholesalers and orchid aficionados, especially when it comes to the less mainstream species which are becoming more important on the world flower market.
Available in English, French, Italian and German.
