Flowers of Volunteer Park Conservatory by Sara L. Chapman, 2011

Reviewed by: Brian Thompson
Review date: 2012-10-01

bookFlowers of Volunteer Park Conservatory is one of the best examples I've seen of a book capturing the spirit of a public garden. Photographer Sara L. Chapman has created monthly visual essays, using both close-ups and panoramas to bring you into the page and remind you of a real life visit. But this is more than just a picture book. The subjects of the photos are carefully captioned, making this a useful identification handbook to conservatory plants.

Excerpted from the Fall 2012 Arboretum Bulletin.
