Cherry, Hardback Book

Cherry Hardback

Part of the Botanical series

Hardback

Description

Ripe, sensuous, irresistible: the cherry tree and its stunning blossoms conjure up many literal, metaphorical and visceral sensations.

We enjoy cherry-picking, a cherry on top, and even, on occasion, to lose one's cherry.

Cherries have been consumed since prehistoric times, reaching great popularity among the ancient Romans.

They have come to symbolize such divergent concepts as fertility, innocence and seductiveness, inspiring Dutch still-life paintings, Freudian theory, contemporary pop artists, and one of the first food emojis.

In Japan and other Asian cultures, the short-lived but beautiful cherry blossoms are important elements throughout art and literature.

In this intriguing natural and cultural history, Mary Newman and Constance L.

Kirker recount the origins, legends, celebrations, production and health benefits of this beloved tree.
