Cherry Blossoms documents the origins and the history of the Cherry Blossom Festival, full of historical photography alongside work by award-winning photographer Ron Blunt. A stunningly beautiful record of the nation's biggest springtime festival and an object d'art, it is the perfect companion to the festival's 100th anniversary in spring 2012 and beautiful memory of the beauty and fragility of the season. Capturing the true essence of spring, Blunt's striking photography also allows those who are unable to travel to the festival the chance to experience the splendor of the blooming cherry blossoms through his photography.
