Floriography: An Illustrated Guide to the Victorian Language of Flowers

The language of flowers was historically used as a means of secret communication. It soared in popularity during the 19th century, especially in Victorian England when proper etiquette discouraged open displays of emotion.

Floriography is a full-colour guide to the historical uses and secret meanings behind an impressive array of flowers and herbs. The book explores the coded significances associated with various blooms, from flowers for a lover to flowers for an enemy.

This stunning book has colourful drawings on every double page by illustrator Jessica Roux and makes a beautiful coffee table book.
