Semper Augustus



‘This is a story about a flower that has made man mad.
Greed, desire, anguish, devotion have all played their part…
No other flower has ever carried so much cultural baggage;
it charts political upheavals, illuminates social behaviour…
plots the ebb and flow of religious persecution.’

The Tulip, Anna Pavord

Semper Augustus is an inquiry into one woman’s understanding of her body and its cultural and historical significance.
