The spontaneous floral installation was Miller’s gift to the city, and now five years later, these elaborate flower bombs have brought moments of delight and wonder to countless New Yorkers and flower lovers everywhere, and earned Miller a following of dedicated fans and the nickname the “Flower Bandit.” Flower Flash (Monacelli, 2021), a new book documenting the hugely popular guerrilla flower installations is a gorgeous and poignant behind-the-scenes look at more than 90 installations. The book’s kaleidoscopic, collage-like design reflects the spontaneous energy of the Flashes, the dynamic spirit of New York City, and the myriad art historical sources from which Miller draws inspiration.
