The spring-blooming flower in all its beauty and variety – portrayed by Peter Arnold in masterful photographs and haiku verses.
No flower, whether in a garden or as a cut flower in a vase, is as well-known and as varied in shape and color as the tulip.
Once the most expensive flower bulb in the world, this ever-cheerful member of the lily family is defined by its vibrant hues and simple sophistication of form.
In this newly-designed classic of floral photography, Peter Arnold captures the tulip in all its beauty and diversity. From familiar to exotic tulip varieties, his exquisite tulip pictures are supplemented with new texts. A winning book for all gardeners, flower lovers, and fans of art and flower photography.
Peter Arnold is both a renowned fine art photographer as well as an accomplished contemporary artist. He is as adept with his Hasselblad and Canon cameras as he is with oil paint and brushes. His beautiful images have won awards all over the world – including Japan, where his tulip book project was a winner at the 2017 Tokyo International Foto Awards and is now published by teNeues.
He has collaborated with clients such as Disney and KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, and also the iconic designer, Alexander McQueen, who used Peter’s tulips and orchid-print pictures on his famous flower dresses worn by Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss. Peter’s work is very diverse, but his speciality and love are creating beautifully-lit and dramatic flower studies – especially tulips. And for this reason, over the years, Peter has earned the nickname of ‘The Tulip Man’. Peter is famous for his best-selling flower books, which all have become classics – Tulips, Orchids and Bulbs in Bloom – and also for his stylish, limited-edition flower prints, which are frequently used by interior designers to enhance their projects.
