Undergrounds - Cape Bulb Book


From the good folks at Straight Books:

It rolls, twists, crumbles. A book that approaches the charm of South African bulbous plants and cape bulbs with mysterious leaves. That said, it is not a practical book for plant cultivation. This book is like a collection of works by growers who quickly noticed this strange leaf form and brought it up to the ideal form. Of course, the basic cultivation explanation is mentioned, but that is not necessarily the straightforward approach. What did the pioneer of this genre, Fumio Fujikawa, notice, what did he think, and what he tried to create? The commentary page is organized in an interview format that tells the story.
