Per has a natural ability to use colour, and to use it well. In this first solo book, he creates some fabulous pieces in some spectacular locations. This man will go far… READERSHIP Floral and interior designers, florists, students.

Imagine creating floral designs in the famous Icehotel in Jukkasjarvi, northern Lapland, and using huge boulders of ice upon which to fashion floral fantasies. In Element’s, Per Benjamin does just that, and with such style and panache. Beautiful arrangements, in an out-of-this-world location. But that is not all; page after page reveals yet more gorgeous designs so obviously created with a sense of enjoyment. There are no techniques pages and little text, however competent florists would be able to take a great deal of inspiration from this book and translate it into their own designs. ‘We all have an emotional relationship with flowers and with nature itself. Flowers are emotions! Being privileged as we are working with flowers we get to interpret and convey these feelings every day in our work. This I find the most intriguing part of my job as a florist, the connection between flowers and people. Could be me translating one person's feelings for another person in flowers, actually being the emotional link between the two. Flowers say so much more than you can put down in words, and sometimes more than you dare to say.’ Per Benjamin
