Flora: An Artistic Voyage Through the World of Plants
This box set tracks the history of key plant families from around the world, detailing the journeys of some plants now more commonly found in the back garden.
Flora introduces the botanists that braved disease, war, and other dangers to bring back the range of plants that we now see on a daily basis. This box set also documents the remarkable behaviours that plants have adapted to survive in hostile and changing habitats.
With more than 20 essays and 160 illustrations, this box set includes detailed descriptions of different specimens of plants, and includes information on regions of cultivation and folklore.
Containing hundreds of illustrations from original botanical paintings held at the Natural History Museum, this box set is visually stunning and informative. Coming complete with 36 framable prints, this book would make a wonderful gift for any horticultural enthusiast.
