Leaves – An experience book for those who love to work with natural materials.
The book ‘Leaves’ is a collaboration between photographer Alfred Oosterman, graphic designer Dick Rutgers and floral designer Ben Clevers. It consists of 150 beautiful photographs of objects made of leaves, the scientific name of the leaf and a brief explanation in English of the technique and the subsoils that have been used.
The photography is finished, the designs, objects and the layout of the book are ready and now there’s just one final step: the printing process.
By buying the book now, you will help to finalise it! In December it goes into print and in January 2021, the authors present their creation.
About the author Ben Clevers
Ben Clevers is a Dutch master florist, an international floral artist and the owner of LEAVES Natural Projects. As a child, he was already passionate about nature and all its beauties and so the choice to become a florist was an easy one. Ben is from Nijmegen in the Netherlands, but soon decided to go out into the world to promote the beautiful profession of florist and of all beautiful natural products.
Years ago, Ben conceived the plan to write a series of books. A series that would show all the possibilities of the material that a florist can work with. This first book focusses on the leaf in all its forms and beauties.
