WHAT KIND OF BOOK IS THE BOOK IS A Fresh Look At Judging Floral Design, A Guide for Judges, Designers, Teachers, Mentors and Host?

A Fresh Look At Judging Floral Design is a book that fills a void in publishing on the topic of floral design and judging. It’s been 50 + years since a new work solely dedicated to design and judging design has been published in the United States. The book is a reference book that has many “workbook-like” features, and thus is unique. Many around the globe are also using it as a textbook.

For years Elements and Principles of Design have been at the core of teaching design. A Fresh Look At Judging reinforces that foundation, and expands design knowledge by providing new opportunities for analyzing and understanding floral design from the judge’s, teacher’s and designer’s perspectives. Among the topics people are excited about is the introduction of tangible and aesthetic standards, bringing greater clarity and more logical analysis to designing and judging. – Kathy Whalen AIFD
