Pot leaves dance with zebra grass, lady slipper orchids, baby’s breath, and other compelling blooms through the pages of A Weed is a Flower, a new photo book showcasing the natural beauty of cannabis in magical floral arrangements.
The book is published by Broccoli, an adventurous three-yearly cannabis-themed magazine. Its title is taken from a 1911 quote by poet Ella Wheeler Wilcox: “A weed is but an unloved flower.” Through favorite shoots gathered from the pages of Broccoli and freshly picked from more than 25 innovative photographers and floral artists from around the world, this splendid coffee table book treats weed with the aesthetic respect it deserves.
Whether you love the cannabis plant in all its facets or not, it will be a thrill to discover the unexpected allure of its well-known leaf through the amusingly creative contributions in this book.
Broccoli, 2021, 168 pages, colour & bw illustrations, hardcover, English
