What are the flowers talking about?

Herbarium with language of flowers, temporary tattoos attached

​​​​​​​What is a language of flowers? An artistic, poetic, emotional communication through the use of flowers. I created a herbarium in which a metaphorical meaning of flowers can be found instead of their informational description.
For example, by giving someone an anemone, we tell them: You are the heaven I’ve lost.
All the flowers are hand-drawn with ink and then transferred to a special paper using a scanning and printing method to create temporary tattoos. A group of volunteers applied them and had a photographs taken. I used the photographs as final illustrations for my book.
