Tulips have already been a source of inspiration for many books, but "Royal Flowers of the Netherlands" is a unique experience. Never before, has this top-species of flowers been presented in such an exquisite manner. Readers will not only be leafing through this richly illustrated book, though. All pictures are provided with short and interesting anecdotes, commenting on the relevant flower, ranging from a description or a botanical explanation, to short stories on plant names or the introduction of the species. Tjak's images are more than just representations of flowers. They are a perfect mixture of lyric and astonishment, and possess an exceptional artistic value.
