Wildflowers for the Queen: A Visual Celebration of Britain's Coronation Meadows [9781527249592]

(1 review) Write a Review

With a Foreword by HRH The Prince of Wales

With contributions from Dan Pearson, Alan Titchmarsh, Nicholas Coleridge, Julian Fellowes, Robert Hardman and Miranda Brooks, and an introduction from Plantlife's Chief Executive, Ian Dunn.

To celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the Coronation, HRH The Prince of Wales called for the creation of new wildflower meadows. The Coronation Meadows project, led by Plantlife and in partnership with The Wildlife Trusts and the Rare Breeds Survival Trust, is working to achieve this goal, and in this book renowned photographer Hugo Rittson Thomas captures the extraordinary results of this important conservation project.

Wildflowers for the Queen is a captivating photographic celebration of the vast array of Coronation Meadows now found across Britain, with stunning studio portraits highlighting the diversity of wildflower species, from the colourful cowslip to the eccentric snake's-head fritillary, from the multifaceted ragged robin to the elusive bee orchid.

Rittson Thomas takes us on a remarkable journey through some of the most beautiful wildflower meadows, from the Viking meadows of Muker in Yorkshire's rolling dales to the unique culm grass meadows of Cornwall. Rittson Thomas also photographs a wide range of rare wild orchids, including the monkey, bee, man and lady orchids, encouraging us to discover the rich botanical heritage of the wildflowers and unique meadows of Great Britain.

'Anyone with a passion for wildflowers, as do I, will love this astonishing book which beautifully captures meadows that have survived, been restored and are a template for what can be done to cultivate and ensure their future.' -- Richard E. Grant, Academy Award, BAFTA & Golden Globe Nominee

AUTHOR: Hugo Rittson Thomas is one of the UK's leading portrait photographers. He started his career in the art world, studying at Central St Martin s and Goldsmiths University of London. He lives and works in the Cotswolds.

    A really beautiful book. If you love wild flowers and regret the loss of our meadows then this is the book for you. I would highly recommend it.
