A contemporary, beautifully illustrated book on flowers, flower pressing and arranging. Melissa Richardson and Amy Fielding run a successful floral design studio based in South London, where they curate a carefully selected edit of botanically inspired homewares and gift ideas. They also create floral designs for events, weddings and creative projects, and love nothing more than to tell stories with flowers. Here they will do just that, sharing their wealth of knowledge on all things floral. The Modern Flower Press will be a gloriously full colour dive into the art of pressing flowers, explaining and illustrating how to choose the right flowers, how to prepare and press them, and an array of uses for the final products. The book will be project-led and inspired by the changing seasons, using seasonal flowers and focusing on composition, colour and form.

‘The Modern Flower Press celebrates pressing’s surprisingly glamorous history, and offers plenty of practical advice, too.’ Alice Vincent, Telegraph 'Celebrate all things botanical and learn about the art of pressing flowers with this beautiful new book by the florists of South London’s beloved JamJar. The Modern Flower Press is a bible of fascinating floral facts, tips, myths and, above all, glorious illustrations and photography.' Tatler ‘Feels like a spellbook incantating more magic than the title alone suggests … Lavish specimens scatter the pages and are reproduced in such papery, translucent detail that one might be forgiven for thinking some cheeky bookseller had slipped in a real stem or two … Encourage[s] readers to find the nearest flower and pick it, immediately, for posterity.’ Amy Merrick, World of Interiors 'Flower pressing is enjoying a particular moment of popularity. Here the pair behind fashionable London florist JamJar Flowers sketch out the history of the pastime, provide inspirational ideas from JamJar's own commissions and offer an array of creative projects to try at home.' The English Garden 'The florists behind JamJar Flowers share their modern take on the lost art of pressing flowers' Gardens Illustrated 'For more inspiration, see the company's new book, The Modern Flower Press' Country Homes & Interiors ‘JamJar: the florist turning dried English meadow flowers into works of Art’ Times Luxx magazine ‘'It tells not only the story of how to press flowers, but it is full of the most wonderful tales of nature and myth and magic and all of the things that make an English flower garden so precious that we want to pick and press the flowers in the first place … punctuated with practical ideas' A Little Bird
