Artist Lucile Parker (1922-2011) often used a magnifying glass to grasp every detail of the wildflowers she illustrated in this postcard book. Using watercolors, she reproduced these graceful beauties, including the mysterious Bird’s-Foot Violet, the robust Indian Pink, and other blossoms.
Ideal for sending a thoughtful message to family and friends, these postcards are reminiscent of the simple charm of the warm Southern countryside. The book includes thirty postcards in color, complete with the common and scientific names of the flowers on the back. Those who receive these cards can tape them up for decoration or store them as mementos. This portable and convenient addition to the companion book, Southern Wildflowers, pleases the eye of the flower lover and acquaints the novice with Lucille Parker’s splendid, floral world.
