9780711231412: The Apple Book
Críticas:

A hybrid between a treasury of exquisite botanical illustrations and a directory of 144 varieties that can grow in the UK.

(Anne Gatti Times)

Each entry in this book is a labour of love.

( Western Morning News)

Exquisite drawings and stories.

( English Garden)

The first thing that struck me about this book was the beautiful illustration on the cover and the rest of the book lived up to this promise

( BBC Countryfile)

Rosie Sanders' lovingly detailed paintings are a pleasure to browse. Even if you didn't appreciate apples before, you probably will by the time you have thumbed through these luscious pages… Short of specifying which variety of apple caused all that kerfuffle in the garden of Eden, it's about as comprehensive as you can get.

( Dales Life)

This handsome volume should be on the Christmas list of everyone interested in apples, and indeed of everyone interested in botanical illustration… Every page is a delight.

( Irish Garden)

Eden's bounty never looked more attractive. Long hours of observation have gone to create a delight, but one that is iwell informed too… Buy it and give it - if you can bear to let it go.

Apple-lovers wont want to be without The Apple Book. So much more effective for identification thatn any photographic guide. The best on the subject, by far.

( Evening Standard)

For the budding pomologist, there is The Apple Book by botanical artist, Rosie Sanders… It depicts in delicious watercolours and precise line drawings 144 varieties of apple. It is one of the most beautiful garden-related books I’ve seen this year.

( Irish Times)

An excellent modern-day pomona, indespensible to the home gardener and small-scale fruit grower… Rosie Saunders is also a botanical illustrator and has supplied her own equally beautiful paintings - one for each of her varieties. Her smaller overall selection will perhaps concentrate the gardener's mind when it comes to choosing from the many, and former RHS fruit officer Harry Barker's chapter on cultivation renders the practical side delightfully straightforward.

( Hortus)

The pictures are so realistic you can almost smell the apples!

( Garden Answers)

A superb book for any enthusiast, gardener or cook.

( Landsman)

Once you have leafed through this book, you will not be able to live without it.

( Professional Gardener)

"Contains sensuously detailed watercolours showing the form, colour and texture of 144 different varieties [of Apple]."

( The Gloucestershire Echo)

"This is a book for those who love fruit, gardening and painting - and anyone of the above." 

( Irish News)

"This book is an open love letter ti tge humble apple, the artist lovingly depicting each variety together with its blossom, twig and leaf, revelling in revelaing every minute detail." 

( English Garden)

"Beautiful botanical paintings are combined with useful descriptive text to provide a valuable introduction to British Apples."

( Gardens Illustrated)

'As an identification manual it is unparalleled, but even if you are not within ten miles of an apple tree, this is a book worth having. It is beautifully put together and full of intriguing information about how different apples got their names.'

Anna Pavord in The Independent on the first edition of The Apple Book

'First published in 1988 and still the most sought-after and trusted book for apple identification in the UK due in no small part to these exquisite botanically accurate illustrations.'
