More Description

Since the day Andy Warhol drew a simple black rose for her, Victoria Leacock has collected hundreds of flower "autographs" from movie stars, stage actors, artists, musicians, and writers. The daughter of documentary filmmaker Richard Leacock and fashion model Marilyn West, Leacock met numerous celebrities as she was growing up, even regularly spending after-school hours observing the vibrant life at The Factory. Signature Flowers gathers 100 of the most intriguing, telling inscriptions Leacock has amassed over the past 20 years.

With flowers ranging from Robert Altman's whimsical fingerprint bouquet to Liz Smith's yellow rose of Texas, Signature Flowers blooms with insight into each artist's personality. Angela Lansbury sketched a simple open tulip, quietly graceful and lady-like. Two flowers by Keith Haring, one showing petals gyrating with vigor and another depicting buds cut down in full bloom, reflect his outlook before and after his AIDS diagnosis. Other contributors include Martin Scorsese, Barbara Walters, Joey Ramone, Jann Wenner, Milos Forman, Joan Didion, and David Hockney.

Photographs of a few artists creating their flowers, with fascinating stories behind the pieces and a complete biographical section describing each artist make this a one-of-a-kind garden of perennials.
