"A Fresh Look at Judging Floral Design by Kathy Whalen AIFD and Hitomi Gilliam AIFD should be required reading for florists of all levels. This book includes something for every florist, advanced or just beginning. The theories and concepts are detailed and carefully explained. The text is easy to follow and filled with diagrams to visually expand upon the concept. Beginning florists can use it for guidelines and direction in their designing education. Advanced florists can refer to the guidelines as they hone their skills to perfection and prepares for design competitions. Lastly, design judeges, teachers or mentors can utilize the guidelines for evaluation as they communicate their knowledge in the classroom or testing environment. Thank you to Kathy and Hitomi for the enormous effort put forth. Never before has there been such a comprehensive compendium of floral theory, technique and aesthetics avaluable to the contemporary floral designer. This is certainly going to be the "got-to" book for today's floral artists." - Leanne Kesler & David Kesler, Floral Design Institute.
