No flowers without bees. Since the modern beehive was patented in 1852, the alternative techniques for tending bees prior to this homogenisation have been overlooked. Using an array of archival images, this book uncovers the forgotten history of hive innovation, offering a renewed perspective to challenge conventional narratives and encourage speculation and curiosity.
This little treasure filled with inventions from over the world is a joyful ode to human creativity.
