Whether it is in the field of art, music or literature: The rose is by far the most painted, sung and written about flower. The queen of all flowers, as Sappho coined the term, belongs to a grand family of over 3,000 relatives. Many roses are named after people, often poets, who have dedicated their special attention to a particular kind of rose.
THE LITERARY ROSE CALENDAR is a collection of weekly quotes by famous writers whose name is also the name of a rose. These quotes are interspersed with wonderfully illustrated photographs by Marion Nickig.
