This one-of-a-kind collaboration between author Susan Orlean and artist Philip Taaffe unites the literary and the visual, the nostalgic and the optimistic, and brings greenery to your bookshelf. Taking inspiration from the rapidly dwindling "flower district" of New York City, Orlean and Taaffe offer tandem musings on the conceit of "the floral ghost." Orlean's essay reflects on a poignant moment when she first visited the district in its resplendent heyday. Her text is accompanied by Taaffe's colourful silkscreen monotypes.
