Took my breath away Sept. 30 2005
By Daniel P. Yang - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book is absolutely beautiful to look at. The arrangements are wonderfully creative. The only minor complain I have with it is that it does not include some sort of instructions on the "how to".

Flowers as Art by Artist Nico De Swert Sept. 20 2006
By Grady Harp - Published on
Format: Hardcover
For sheer beauty this book of floral designs is one of the finest on the market. Published by Harry N Abrams in that publishing house's usual flair for quality of paper and color reproduction, LIVING WITH FLOWERS is a stunning volume that not only allows the viewer to see creative floral sculptures but also reveals resources not usually accompanying volumes such as this.

Floral designer Nico De Swert shuns the usual minimalist approach or the traditional look of flower arrangement and instead goes for masses of interesting forms and volumes of flowers and greens and plants, color keyed in unusual ways. The book is divided into sections that deal with color: oranges, yellows, blues, whites, reds - all sections are filled with seemingly endless ideas novel to this floral genius' mind.

But an equal part of the success of this book goes to photographer Wendell T. Webber whose skill as a still life photographer and whose sensitivity to lighting and focus make these creations by De Swert sing. This is a book for indulgence of the visual senses, yet it is also a stimulus for gardeners to look at the explosions of colors in the natural state in a new way. Highly recommended. Grady Harp, September 06

This book is wonderful in so many ways. The florals and designs gorgeous and unique. The images are stunning, and the writing is beautiful. As a wedding photographer with a love for beautiful floral arrangements and home decor, this book is a great addition to my small collection of coffee table books in my living room. It is also serving as inspiration for an editorial shoot I'm planning in the new year.
Truly gorgeous. June 11 2006

Format: Hardcover
Along with Madderlake's "Flowers Rediscovered", this is one of my favourite book of floral art. The photography is gorgeous and many of the designs are eminently do-able. I wish the vase suppliers were acknowledged individually...........I'm desparate to find the multi-opening vase on page 14.
