9780112500667: Walter Hood Fitch: A Celebration

In the 19th century, when plant collecting by intrepid explorers was at its peak, demand for botanical illustrations was overwhelming. This book looks at the work of Walter Hood Fitch, whose flamboyant yet accurate drawings have made a lasting contribution to our knowledge of the plant world and to the art of botanical illustration. Fitch was working as a pattern drawer in a textile mill in Glasgow when his talents were spotted. So began a lifelong association with Kew and a career of over 40 years illustrating "Curtis's Botanical Magazine". This book celebrates his long association with one of the world's most famous botanical gardens.
