The Orkney Book of Wildflowers is scheduled for publication at Christmas 2014. Tim Dean is writing the text, Anne Bignall is painting the habitats and flowers and the Orcadian is responsible for the publishing.
The book will be a sister volume to The Orkney Book of Birds and will follow the same unique and successful format. There will be 50 plates depicting ten Orkney habitats and nearly 220 of Orkney's wildflowers.
