In The Paper Garden, celebrated poet Molly Peacock explores the remarkable life of 18th-century British gentlewoman-turned-artist Mary Delany. In the 1770s, at the age of 72, the twice-widowed and nearly broke Delany turned her interest in botany into beautiful paper “mosaick” flowers still revered today.
"[N]ot only an introduction to a unique artist, but also a whole bouquet of thoughts and observations about the flow of life.” (Washington Post)
