Flora Superba

London: The Tyron Gallery, 1971.

A remarkably beautiful book by one of the most celebrated modern flower painters, printed by the Curwen Press and published in an edition of only 406 numbered and signed copies. As Sir George Taylor explains in his Note, the book began because "I had long thought that Paul Jones could paint very successfully a series of pictures in a modern version of The Temple of Flora [for an exhibition]... His pictures, which included the 'Datura', the frontispiece of this book, were greatly admired, and encouraged by this we then planned this present book..."
