Flora's Feast: A Masque Of Flowers, Book
One of Crane’s most well-received books, Flora’s Feast tells the story of goddess Flora waking all the flowers in a garden for their blooming, to form a great ceremonial spring procession. It was the first of a series of books by Crane that featured flowers imitating human activities. The designer’s playful depiction of nature contrasted with the highly technical language of illustrations for the period’s scientific texts on botany but nurtured the same enthusiasm for the natural world
