See Inside


Illustrator Angie Lewin and author Christopher Stocks follow up the success of The Book of Pebbles with The Book of Wild Flowers, a celebration of British wild flowers and their place in the landscape.

Christopher Stocks explores their beguiling and sometimes peculiar history, and reveals some of the best places to see them, as well as the conditions in which they thrive. It focuses on around 21 of Lewin's favourite wild flowers, and includes reproductions of her paintings and illustrations, many of them created specially for the book.

Sustaining our long-held affection for the British countryside, The Book of Wild Flowers will appeal to anyone who loves British wild flowers, as well as fans of Angie Lewin, who is widely admired for her alluring images of the natural world.


'A beautiful little book in every way ... Lyrical and eye-catching on the one hand, informative on the other, their work encourages us to look more closely at the nature around us ... A treasure of a book'
House & Garden

'Fans of Angie Lewin’s acclaimed watercolours and linocut prints of the natural world will appreciate the delightful new images featured within the book, along with some stunning reproductions of a selection of her previous illustrations'
Period Living Magazine

'This superbly illustrated little book is a gloriously quirky whistlestop tour of some of our most interesting plants. It ranges from the commonplace (ivy, snowdrops and dandelions) to the obscure (devil’s bit scabious, snake’s-head fritillary)'
The Scottish Field Magazine
