During the dreary winter months, I begin to really miss being out in my garden. It can be challenging knowing that the long wait until spring is far from being over. I like to curb these feelings with some seed catalogs and good gardening books. Looking at pictures of vegetables and beautiful plants gets me excited and keeps me motivated until the upcoming planting season begins. The Graphic Vegetable: Food and Art from America’s Soil by Michael B. Emery & Irwin Richman will help quell your winter woes.
This book is a visual buffet filled with images of vintage catalogs, lithographs, seed packets, postcards and botanical illustrations. As an photographer, I really appreciate the history and vision of gardening from the past to present detailed throughout the pages. I flipped through with wonder as I observed an assortment of images and interesting facts.
