V roce 2012 se součástí Nakladatelství Slovart stalo nakladatelství Brio. Nakladatelství Brio vydávalo ve spolupráci s předními spisovateli a výtvarníky nádherně ilustrované originální příběhy a sbírky pohádek pro děti od šesti do dvanácti let. Pro starší děti, mládež a dospělé Brio nabízelo sebrané spisy pohádek a bajek od renomovaných spisovatelů, doplněné o to nejlepší z klasické literatury celého světa. V této tradici pokračujeme také my v rámci stejnojmenné edice.

A beautifully illustrated and unique history of the rose―the “queen of flowers”―in art, medicine, cuisine, and more

“The social, cultural and horticultural history of the rose is entertainingly and thoughtfully displayed.”―Garden News

"I would recommend Rosa as a gift for anyone who loves flowers, although once purchased you would find it hard to pass on!"―Judith Blacklock, Flora Magazine

Few flowers have quite the same allure or as significant a place in history as the rose. A symbol of love, power, royalty, beauty, and joy, the rose has played many roles, both literal and symbolic, in poetry, art, literature, music, fashion, medicine, perfume, decoration, cuisine, and more.
 
In this beautifully illustrated guide, award-winning horticulturist Peter E. Kukielski and his coauthor, Charles Phillips, tell the fascinating and many-layered history of this “queen of flowers.” The book explores many stories from the long association of roses with human societies, from their first cultivation―likely in China some five thousand years ago―to their modern genetic cultivars. It shows how roses have been prominent across time and many cultures, including ancient Greece and Rome, Christianity, Islam, and Sufism.
 
The book, with more than 140 color illustrations, offers a unique look at the essential contributions that roses have made throughout human history.

Review

"Rosa would be an outstanding gift all by itself -- graced with more than 140 color illustrations (historical and recent) and richly packed with rose lore of every kind."--William Scheick, Texas Gardener's Seeds

"Rosa: The Story of the Rose (with its 140 beautiful illustrations), by Peter E. Kukielski, is a gem. I love roses, and Kukielski has given me an even greater understanding of their history and beauty."--Pat Leuchtman, Commonweeder.com

"Kukielski is the horticulturalist who famously curated the award-winning Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden at the New York Botanical Garden from 2006 to 2014. He is the summa cum laude of this queen of the flowers and its deep history and lore. And this book­--heavy to hold in your lap, with its thick, rich pages, gorgeously produced by Yale University Press--is a coffee-table keeper."--Beth Py-Lieberman, Washington Gardener

"An inspiring, beautifully illustrated book."--Triangle Gardener

"A stunner."--Tom Atwell, Portland Press Herald

"The authors present the most comprehensive exploration of the evolution, development, impact and importance of roses from antiquity to present times that I have ever found."--Gaye Hammond, Past President of the Houston Rose Society

"Rosa emphasizes the wonder of the rose by tracing the many ways it has shaped cultures around the world. It is wonderfully and richly illustrated."--Michael Marriott, Senior Rosarian at David Austin Roses, and Rose Garden Designer

"Rich in fascinating cultural history, Rosa takes us on a joyous visual romp through the stories and symbolism of the most iconic of all garden flowers."--Peter Crane, author of Ginkgo: The Tree that Time Forgot
