Stunningly beautiful coffee table book

Stunningly beautiful coffee table book

This is one of the most gorgeous books I've seen in ages. The floral illustrations are breathtaking, the hand-drawn 19th-century typography is beautiful, and the creamy antique paper stock is super lux. Jay Peter Salvas is credited as the designer, so mad props to him on a job well done!
