    NAFAS Books

    Time sees great change everywhere, ideas, opinions, technology, and economics all leave a mark. NAFAS has changed over its 60 plus years and will continue to in order to become relevant and attract more members.

    Time, however, does not change the basis of the Elements and Principles we use in flower arranging as Pam Bluer, past Chairman of the National Education Committee mentions in the first edition of this book, that knowledge is essential.

    We are delighted to be republishing this popular book, in which the understanding and meaning of contemporary floral design is relevant to the here and now.
