Books and publications

I like books! Have plenty of them and most of my orchid books are in French.

    Hello. Do you know of any good books in english similar to “Milles et une miniorchidees” and/or “Cultiver les orchidees avec ou sans lumiere artificielle” ? I don’t think either book has an english translation, however both topics are important to me and my little green children. Thank you
