The Modern Flower Press is a storybook full of entertaining facts, myths and legends about flowers. Melissa and Amy explain all aspects of the history of pressing flowers, from its origins to the present day. They show you how to choose the right flowers for pressing, how to prepare and press them, and share ideas for projects and artworks to display them in all their perfectly preserved glory. From their own small and large-scale commissions to lovely ideas that you can make at home by following their clear, full-colour illustrated step-by-step instructions, there are designs here to make best use of your favourite garden or wild flowers.

Packed with inspiring ideas, quirky facts and glorious photography, this celebration of the botanical world is the ideal book for gardeners, artists, crafters, and anyone who is interested in learning about flowers. It is the perfect introduction to the lost art of flower pressing.

Melissa Richardson:

Melissa Richardson and Amy Fielding are co-owners of the innovative florists JamJar Flowers. Their signature style was first inspired by the Sussex garden and woods that surrounded Melissa’s childhood home, and the simple charm of local wild flowers, picked and arranged in jam jars and displayed on the kitchen table. From these uncomplicated beginnings, JamJar has diversified into something of a high wire florist culminating in the design and creation of the London Gate for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in 2019. They have also worked for a wide range of clients including Sketch and Mulberry.
