An unabridged miniature edition of Botanica Magnifica, featuring two hundred and fifty stunning photographs of rare or exotic plants and flowers by the Audubon of flowers,” Jonathan Singer

First published as an oversized clothbound volume in 2009, Botanica Magnifica has received widespread acclaim from the scientific and artistic communities. In the words of an ARTnews critic, Singer’s flowers and plants, photographed in large scale and exquisite detail, emerge from the shadows in a manner evocative of Old Master paintings.”

Now we are pleased to offer this masterwork of botanical photography as a pocket-sized hardcover book, in our trademarked Tiny Folio format. Mirroring the design of the larger edition, this little volume is organized into five alphabetically arranged sections: (I) Orchidaceae, presenting the full diversity of orchids; (II) Florilegium, portraying the complexity and beauty of flowers; (III) Proteus, illustrating plant forms perfectly adapted for survival; (IV) Zingiberaceae, a tribute to the fascinating ginger family and (V) Botanicus, a selection of beautiful and bizarre specimens from the Smithsonian’s research collection. Each pictured plant is accompanied by a clear and accessible description of its botany, geography, history, and conservation.

With its marvelous reproductions and fascinating text, the Tiny Folio of Botanica Magnifica is a charming miniature version of one of the most impressive volumes of natural history ever published.

Review:

Praise for Botanica Magnifica:

"This has to be, hands down, the most gorgeous book of the year." ARTnews

"Goes way beyond typical nature photography to reveal not just the shape and substance of these living things but also their essence." O, the Oprah Magazine

"Art aficionados marvel at their painterly quality, and botanists are in awe of how Singer manages to capture them so true to form." Smithsonian Magazine

"You've never seen still-lifes of flora this crisp and hyper-real before. Photographer Jonathan Singer uses cutting edge digital techniques to reveal delicate structures of plant life to often jaw-dropping effect." Elle Magazine

"A podiatrist photographs some of the world’s most endangered flowers with remarkable precision and artistry, hoping to raise the plants’ profiles before it’s too late." Audubon Magazine

" It's [Singer's] flowers, in Botanica Magnifica, that have caused quite a stir. Art aficionados marvel at their painterly quality, and botanists are in awe of how Singer manages to capture them so true to form " Smithsonian(dot)com

"A greenhouse between two covers." Reader's Digest

"Botanica Magnifica is truly one of the most amazing natural history publications that has ever appeared " Zoom Magazine

"As rare and sublime as the marvels surveyed within its broad covers, Singer has produced a work to rest alongside some of the great botanical codexes in history, one for connoisseurs of the still-life, natural phenomena, and the photographic art." Library Journal

"This single and singular volume offers profound delight Together the artist and the scientist observe and create diverse and new forms with these images." Bloomsbury Review
