Arranging Flower Arranging - Andrea Salerno
In early 2018, Andrea Salerno came back home with a book titled Flower Arranging, an illustrated home reference manual about floral decoration dated 1966. The book was printed in Holland, yet published almost simultaneously in Des Moines (1965) and Glasgow (1966). The volume appeared to be sold in a no-longer existing bookshop in Johannesburg, between Pritchard and Loveday Streets, and eventually travelled back to the Netherlands, where he found it in a charity shop not too far from his house. Soon afterwards Andrea started rearranging its sequence of flower arrangements with the help of Yeliz Secerli, in which the authors go one step further and arrange photographs from a flower arrangement book, rather than flowers.
