Great Orchid Book

I’ve been collecting orchid books for years, but this ranks as one of my favorites. Manuel Aubron’s fantastic photos capture the beauty and strangeness of orchids, and the text provides concise descriptions of how these plants grow in the wild. As a bonus it’s 2 books in 1, combining a large coffee-table book of detailed flower photos, and a mini orchid care book embedded in the back. With a focus on species across different regions of the world, they feature a great variety of uncommon orchids.
