    Description

    Flowers for a Pandemic is a collection of fifty-five floral mandalas, envisaged, created, and photographed by Carol Whitman in and around Point Reyes Station, California, where she lives.

    In 2020, in the midst of the COVID pandemic and other tumultuous events in the United States and the world, Carol began making flower mandalas as a kind of daily meditation. She gathers materials from her own vibrant garden and those of her friends, and from the beaches and lands surrounding her home. Using an old garden table as her canvas, she fashions the items into mandalas, photographs them, and shares them on social media, establishing a calm base for her day and communicating a sense of beauty and peace to many others.

    The idea for Flowers for a Pandemic came from friends. They repeatedly urged her to make a book of the mandalas. She found a talented book designer and photographer Michael Starkman.  Micheal was a great collaborator.  He knew the business of book design and made many suggestions about the look and feel of the book.
