If you buy a book, a collection, an album or a floral recipe, you will always be able to see it and consult using your user profile. This option is more expensive than a subscription.
The most economical option is a subscription. There are various types (biennial, annual or six-monthly) and you can choose the one that suits you. If you do not renew your subscription, you will no longer be able to see the floral recipes.
Once you subscribe, you will be able to see the last collection published till you decided not subscribed again. Subscription
The digital book is the total of twelve collections, each one published monthly. It is coloured grey on the website. A collection consists of two or four albums (depending on if it is by an international florist or Carles J. Fontanillas), published monthly and referring to the time of year in which it is published.
Each collection includes between eight and sixteen floral recipes. It is yellow on the website.
An album contains four floral recipes (centred on a theme, material or technique). They are identified by the colour blue.
A floral recipe is a step-by-step guide, together with photographs, a video tutorial, helpful hints, a list of the materials needed, technical information...all so that you can realise a particular floral design. They are pink.
A Demo recipe is free, being an example floral recipe showing how to structure and create a floral design within a floral recipe. All the floral recipes follow the same work scheme.
The collections are monthly. Carles J. Fontanillas will alternate a collection of his own with one from a reputed and well-known international floral designer. In 2016 there will be a new proposition.
Throughout the year there will be presented six collections of different compositions (the four seasons, one for brides and one for Christmas), always with an eye to what time of the year it is. A collection by an international florist on its very own theme will also be presented in between collections presented by Carles J. Fontanillas himself. FLOOS collections never focus on the set holidays, but are based on showing techniques and materials applied to the world of florists.
To be able to classify the compositions by difficulty, the time they take or the cost of materials, we have created icons that help you to filter or identify the characteristics of each floral recipe.
