Oh that is lovely! Both the book and the flower (looks like a cornflower?). I might even like to have that book, is it available? :D

It looks like a cornflower to me, too. (Sometimes called a Bachelor's Button)

any idea how old the flower is?

I'm guessing it's around the same age as the book. 100 years, at least.

It is kind of amazing to think that a flower, from possibly 100 years ago, could still be so beautiful and admired by so many people. I think this is a neat blog. Thanks for sharing.
