“Antonio Bond’s eye for design is admirable and stunning. He has taken the conventional fashion of floral arrangement and created a new stage of floral display. Combining flowers with everything from rustic objects, shiny statues or bones, he is not simply a florist, but a full on artist because what he creates is art. This book will definitely be found on my coffee table as each page inspires.”

“Antonio Bond is an unmitigated genius. He is also the nicest guy I know. His work is surprising, endearing, moving, sculptural, and heartbreaking. The fact that they are temporary works of art makes them all the more special, and the images in this book feature them while they are still alive, capturing the moment that they are most alluring. He is truly an artist in the finest sense-creating work that is open to interpretation, and making us push our boundaries of what we know as beautiful. The flowers and objects he uses show the wonder of nature and how it coincides with the man-made. His sensibility is unique, and his technique is masterful. This book changes the viewer’s perception of everything they have seen before. The beauty is found in the composition, the color, and in the imperfection. I love this book.”
