Paper Garden -- Book Review
Molly Peacock narrates the life of Mary Delany who in her old age created a whole new art form -- mixed media collage. Full of gorgeous botanical pictures done by Delany you can see first hand the exquisite detail and minute attention to accuracy. The pieces look like painting instead of cut paper. Peacock also draws connections between her artistic journey and Delany's deftly weaving an interesting narrative about Delany's life and her flowers.
