Both of these recent imports are entries in an increasingly crowded field. Donaldson's book, the more substantial of the two, reflects her expeience as a teacher of dried flower workshops in England. She includes projects for posies, pomanders, potted arrangements, topiary, and wreaths as well as general information on drying flowers. Each project has a list of materials, step-by-step instructions, and an excellent color photograph of the finished product. Eckhardt's book, part of an Australian publisher's series, deals with pressed flowers in flat, two-dimensional arrangements framed under glass. She gives hints for pressing and mounting flowers and instructions for making a press. With only a dozen actual projects, this book does not have enough material to warrant purchase by a library. Neither of these books can compete with earlier, more comprehensive titles such as Susan Conder and others' The Complete Flower Craft Book (LJ 5/1/94), which is a much better buy for public library collections.?Constance Ashmore Fairchild, formerly with Univ. of Illinois Lib., Urbana-Champaign
