    This is a book, just as described in the other reviews, of step by step images and text for 7 arrangements. Only one of those involves fewer than a dozen (most are more than 2 dozen) stems. if you’re looking for small arrangement help, there’s probably a better choice (I am still looking for it).

    The book is pretty, though.

    Eileen Johnson’s “The Art of Floral Arranging” is a beautiful book, but definitely not a “how to” guide. I purchased it expecting to see basic floral design techniques that I could use to make gifts and arrangements for my house. But while the photos are gorgeous, the book does not feature the kind of step by step instruction that I’d hoped for. If you want pretty pictures, “The Art of Floral Arranging” is a good choice. But if you’re looking for the “how-to’s” of flower design, try your local craft store or community college instead!
