THE NEW BOTANY

Elle Decoration (South Africa) - - SPOTLIGHT: WORD OF MOUTH -

Dis­cover the fas­ci­nat­ing world of flora in The Ac­ci­den­tal Botanist (Clearview), a cap­ti­vat­ing book by Zim­babwe-born ad­ven­turer and plants­man Rob­bie Honey, lav­ishly il­lus­trated not with pro­fes­sion­ally taken images, but with im­pres­sive cap­tures from his iPhone. With a back­ground in hor­ti­cul­ture, in­te­rior de­sign and pho­tog­ra­phy, as well as in flo­ral de­sign for lux­ury brands rang­ing from Valentino to Dior, Honey counts lec­tur­ing among his cur­rent oc­cu­pa­tions and has also de­vel­oped a col­lec­tion of scented can­dles. This unique pho­to­graphic book presents an artistic, mod­ern take on tra­di­tional botany and is a must-have for lovers of the nat­u­ral world.
