"A seat at Cathy Graham's table has long been a coveted invitation.
. . . Graham has captured her one-of-a-kind eye and dry visual
humor in a new book, Second Bloom: Cathy Graham's Art of the
Table, peppered with her charming watercolors."-- "1stdibs"
"Never was there a more beautiful book! Second Bloom is an extraordinary achievement not just of Cathy's great talent--it's a work of art. Every detail and every page is just perfection. The cover! The endpapers, printed so it's hard to believe they're not the original watercolors! And the binding looks like hand-painted linen, every detail crisp and visible. Just sitting on a table the book brings joy, let alone when you open it. The quality of the printing is extraordinary--I want to frame every page. The colors and the clarity and the quality and the detail, down to the shadows of the petals--amazing! I do think the book is the greatest value--where else can you get a work of art for $35.00? And best of all, Second Bloom truly conveys Cathy's unique and original and brilliant artistry."-- "Howard Slatkin, author, Fifth Avenue Style"
"There are few sights as satisfying as a perfectly presented floral arrangement. . . . Second Bloom: Cathy Graham's Art of the Table [inspires] with so many dazzling images."--ArchitecturalDigest.com
