This is the follow-up to "The Fine Art of Flower Arranging", representing more than 130 American amateur flower arrangers. Showcasing more than 200 designs by more than 130 gifted amateur arrangers from all over the United States under the auspices of the World Association of Flower Arrangers (WAFA), "Flower Arranging the American Way" is a contemporary celebration of an art form dating back to the third millennium BC. Superbly photographed by Mick Hales and other talented photographers, with each arrangement explained in clear and inviting detail by author Nancy D'Oench, the selection of designs shown here is distinctly American. In addition to flowers and foliage native to the area, each designer has cleverly incorporated natural materials from the seashore, the roadside and even the compost heap, as well as fine glass, ceramic, metal and plastic artworks, to make dramatic mixed-media creations. Arrangers at all skill levels will find inspiration and advice aplenty, including some sophisticated techniques from around the world contributed by fellow WAFA members.
