The Dust Has Grown Flowers Reviews

    everyone should read and own this. it's wonderful

    I love how Fiphie created the most beautiful compilation of artwork (especially her watercolor portraits!!) and combined it with her poetry. I have never owned any book similar to this one. The Dust Has Grown Flowers is truly a treasure chest. It’s incredibly beautiful. Each page is so special. I couldn’t decide which one was my favorite. I particularly like the beginning of her poem “Lucky Strikes”:

    “Falling for you felt like watching the stars through a telescope and all too often I still catc

    I love how Fiphie created the most beautiful compilation of artwork (especially her watercolor portraits!!) and combined it with her poetry. I have never owned any book similar to this one. The Dust Has Grown Flowers is truly a treasure chest. It’s incredibly beautiful. Each page is so special. I couldn’t decide which one was my favorite. I particularly like the beginning of her poem “Lucky Strikes”:

    “Falling for you felt like watching the stars through a telescope and all too often I still catch myself looking up at the sky wondering how much would be left of me if got too close to those fires burning beyond our atmosphere.”

    (There’s more poetry in the book than she shares on her Instagram, so it’s not just an art book).

    Oh my heart, where do I start? The Dust Has Grown Flowers is such an incredibly unique book. All the art in combination with poetry and aphorisms has honestly left me in awe.

    Oh my heart, where do I start? The Dust Has Grown Flowers is such an incredibly unique book. All the art in combination with poetry and aphorisms has honestly left me in awe.

    If you don’t know Fiphie (@fireflyfiphie on Instagram) you should immediately check her out after having read my review. Or else you won‘t get what I am talking about. 🙈

    Not all written work in there is poetry, Fiphie loves to accompany her illustrations and watercolor works with aphorisms (aka short statements or questions that are very relatable or leave you thinking). To 99% you’ve seen her wonderful work (mostly art journals) on Pinterest before.

    The book also includes longer pieces which sometimes read a little more like essays/ prose poetry. In her poems she dives into topics such as love, heartbreak, loss, her fear of dying, trauma, saying goodbye, and femininity. I particularly loved her poem on wanderlust:

    „Wanderlust can be bittersweet at times because of leaving behind all the people who may have loved you more than you had ever dared to expect. And although you are still part of the universe your tracks are long ago gone with the wind.“

    This one I‘d love to tattoo on my skin to be reminded forever that my vulnerability is beautiful:

    „These are not tears. These are salty drops of rain watering the flowers growing inside my chest.“

    The poetry is written in a modern style. So if you love books like Milk & Honey or 18 years, you’ll devour this one. Fiphie is German, so I am still pondering how a non-native speaker can write so beautifully in English!

    The book also contains some little extras which made it fairly special and even more fun to discover. It also includes two tail bands which is so nice if you want to mark your favorite pages or if you want to take a little break from reading.

    So if you’re looking for a diverse and very unique book, I highly recommend you to give The Dust Has Grown Flowers a try!

    The book isn’t available on Amazon. Fiphie sells it through her online store

    This book. I fell in love with this beautiful book upon reading the reviews on here back in November, and eventually picked one up and was so excited when it finally arrived in January. As soon as I got my package, I ripped it open with my fiance standing there, grinning at me squealing over the box it came in, and then the book itself. I couldn't put it down. I brought it with me everywhere. Even my fiance jokingly noted the book was attached to me at the hip almost. I truly felt that way, and

    This book. I fell in love with this beautiful book upon reading the reviews on here back in November, and eventually picked one up and was so excited when it finally arrived in January. As soon as I got my package, I ripped it open with my fiance standing there, grinning at me squealing over the box it came in, and then the book itself. I couldn't put it down. I brought it with me everywhere. Even my fiance jokingly noted the book was attached to me at the hip almost. I truly felt that way, and still do after finally finishing it. I've always been a huge fan of journals, and diaries. Even as a kid- I was the strange one in my friend group who'd always ask to trade diaries. It wasn't for the fact that I wanted to see if my friends had been talking bad about me, I literally just enjoyed reading other people's thoughts and what they went through. What their struggles were, and what they loved. This beautiful book truly felt like I was holding someone's personal diary. Was almost nostalgic for me. There were so many things about this book I truly connected with. But what really made me feel like this was her art throughout the book. I had a loved one pass away from cancer several years ago who had a very similar art style to Fiphie. This truly brought me back to a time I cherished when that person was still alive and well. So thank you, for those memories. Each page of artwork made me feel so deeply connected. No other book has made me feel like that. And that's why this book is truly special. One of a kind.

    I really hope Fiphie writes another book, I want to read so much more from her. That's why I pro-longed finishing this tbh, I didn't want it to end. Please, Fiphie- if you ever happen to see this review, please consider writing a second book. Nobody in the writing world writes like you do, or puts this much love and soul into a physical book.

    I absolutely loved to read this book more than i could ever explain. I keep going back to look at my favourite pahes. It is like a true art journal, and actual holding fiphies creations in my own hands made me so happy and inspired instantly. I would 100% recommend it to everybody who loves to flip trough filled journals, or needs a boost of inspiration!

    is one of my new favourite authors and if there will ever be a second one i will for sure get it!
