About the Book
This book collects all of the Baha'i writings that mention flowers or the springtime. This book uses the Baskerville font, which is an improvement over an earlier version of the book where I had used sans serif fonts. The content is otherwise identical to the other version of this book.
Baha'u'llah was the founder of the Baha'i Religion. This book would make a good inspirational book, and could be used for a specialized study of the Baha'i Faith. There is only one page of commentary by the author. Everything else is in the form of passages and quotations taken from scriptures and publications that are in the public domain. The back of the book has references to the source for every quotation and the place where every photograph was taken.
