A GROUND BREAKING 21ST CENTURY FIRST:

The traditional medium of botanical art is given a new lens with

the aim to ultimately connect the reader to a bigger picture – one

in which the intricate relationship between ourselves, the natural

environment, plants and their pollinators is revealed.

Expect meticulous detailing of floral structures, bursting seed

pods, brightly coloured beetles, foraging ants, floating pollen

and striped field mice…coupled with scientific facts and narrative

stories about each plant.

This is a florilegium immersed in the natural world, informed by

ecology and the fragility of our botanical heritage. Each chapter

includes an up-front ‘Wunderkammer’ of artists’ notes, colour

swatches, working drawings and archeological details, revealing

a glimpse into the creative process and ancient origins of the area.
