Walter Crane, one the best-loved designers of the British Arts and Crafts movement, produced this beautifully illustrated poem that tells the delightful story of a wedding day in 1905. This lovely facsimile edition, reproduced in glorious color, bound in real cloth, and embossed with foil, makes a perfect wedding, engagement, or Valentine's Day gift.

"Yes, flower bells rang
right merry that day,
When there was a marriage
of flowers, they say."
