Icons

Icons have a great continuity of style and subject, but at the same time there is change and development. Wikipedia couldn’t have said it any better. Icons are just like nature. Mother earth gave us the natural languages of design and shapes, freezing moments of attention.

In this issue we’re proud to show eyecatching florals (oh dear Anthurium, she looked up and caught my breath) and soul meeting plants. Leaving an impression that’s there to last. Showing the ethereal tender Bonsai, like you’ve never seen her before. A graceful dancer, immersed in love and dedication. Bonsai is an art form that reflects the connectedness of life and respect for the beauty of nature.

In this issue we’ll caress the greatest flowers and plants. Because ‘there is still space for you and me, to grace the lips and pages of history to be motivator, a model to future people to spring forth flowers from our hithertho bushes and make our today a better tomorrow’ (Hamid Saheed). We bring in a sophisticated season, with an unforgettable encounter of florals and computers, both intimate witnesses of your daily life and more symbiotic and iconic than you could ever imagine.

Start celebrating the beauty of nature_______.
