Slipper Orchids of the Tropical Americas by Phillip Cribb & Christopher Purver
There has long been a need for an authoritative monograph on the Neotropical slipper orchids in English, and this want has been beautifully filled by the new book by Phillip Cribb and Christopher Purver. The species are illustrated, many with the beautiful botanical paintings of Carol Woodin currently one of the top botanical artists in the USA. Not only is this book an important reference, but it is readable and beautifully put together.
