    Okay, I give up.
    I Googled the photo and didn’t find anything similar.
    I too would love knowing more about those beautiful flowers in that book.
    By the way, while searching I found many beautiful books, restaurants, and Anne Dillard quotes.

    The flowers are Mexican hat plant (Ratibida columnifera). Its a native of the Midwest, and is a perennial wild flower that you can grow from seed.
