The greatest botanical illustrations throughout the history of the genre are presented in this fascinating and beautifully designed survey. Beginning with the ancient Egyptians, plants, flowers and herbs have been the subject of the artist's attention. Author Lys de Bray explains why skilled botanical art is better - and of more use to posterity - than the best photographs.
