À l’occasion du trentième anniversaire de la Pyramide du Louvre, Jean-Michel Othoniel a été invité par le musée à réaliser un ouvrage témoignant de l'importance des fleurs dans les huit départements que compte celui-ci. L'artiste compose un herbier inédit accompagné des notes qu'il a écrites sur le langage secret des fleurs et sur leur symbolique dans la peinture ancienne. Il en révèle ainsi leur sens caché en contant leurs histoires et leurs mythologies. Cet ouvrage se présente comme un carnet abécédaire que l’artiste a nourri au fil des salles du musée du Louvre où on retrouve le chardon dans l'autoportrait de Durer, le pavot dans la stèle funéraire de Paros, la pomme posée sur le tabouret dans le verrou de Fragonard, ou encore la pivoine dans la chemise dégrafée de la jeune fille à lac.
