Love From Kew is a postbag full of scribbled stories - tiny tales from visitors' lives are entwined with Kew's secrets in an imaginative and beautiful scrapbook of poetic postcard prose that sings with the spirit of the Gardens. Postcards let us look into lives - their scribbled stories are cryptic, funny and poignant. The everyday is captured in inky messages about birthdays, snow, exams, dancing, and love, written on picture postcards from Kew Gardens.

Told with wonder and imagination, author Sophie Shillito entwines these tiny tales with secrets from the landscape which mumble through the turf and whisper in the bushes. Love From Kew offers a fascinating insight into this social anthropology and micro-history, revealing the human need to connect with Kew and the natural world, as well as the importance of communicating with loved ones - two themes that are ever more precious and valued in recent times.
