This month, Taschen is scheduled to release a 25th Anniversary edition of its popular title, Roses.
The book is an accurate reproduction of French flower painter Pierre-Joseph Redouté's work Les Roses, which was published between 1817 and 1824. The celebrated artist is known in part for his commissions for Napoleon's wife Josephine, but above all for his skill and innovation. At about $25, the book makes an affordable yet lovely gift.
