“Seeing Flowers” looks at blooms in a way you probably never have.

Author Teri Dunn Chace and photographer Robert Llewellyn teamed up to explore flowers in intricate detail.

Llewellyn’s photography forms the basis of the book. He created each photograph with a process that involved shooting smaller images at various points of focus and then combining them into a single photo using software developed for use with microscopes.

The result is a series of captivating, exquisitely detailed images, which Chace enhances with information about the plants.

“Seeing Flowers: Discover the Hidden Life of Flowers” sells for $29.95 in hardcover.
