This lavishly illustrated, oversized volume is a gorgeous tribute to one of the most beloved flowers of spring. The tulip has a long and storied history, including an episode in seventeenth-century Holland, when speculation in tulip bulbs raged out of control, nearly bankrupting the entire nation. Originally published at $40; over 20 thousand copies sold.

This oversize book has the most gorgeous photos of tulips I've ever seen - closeups of the inside of tulips and of dewdrops on their petals, velvety focing on one tulip, landscapes of fields of tulips, all colors and all varieties. I do considerable flower photography and am particularly fond of tulips - and this book is a gem. I'm surprised that it's not well known. Each oversize full color photo has a relevant and inspiring quotation on the facing page. Highly recommended.

it is a pretty 'coffee table' book. I expected a more detail book so I could paint tulips from it. But it is a nice book for the coffee table
