Floriography, or the Language of Flowers, is the art of communicating (usually secret) messages or feelings through flowers. Used since the Ancient Greece, Floriography became very popular during the Victorian Era. It has also been very popular with painters and poets. Shakespeare had a particular fondness for this art, and there is probably no better example of it than Hamlet and its tragic character Ophelia.
This fanzine includes a full dictionary based on the Kate Greenway book as well as practical examples of floriography, from paintings to poems. My main goal was to update this language by exploring the editorial, keeping in mind the duality and secrecy associated with it.
