Treasures of Botanical Art
This is the catalogue of the first ever exhibition in the Shirley Sherwood Gallery of Botanical Art at Kew Gardens.
As you can imagine the organisers put in extra effort to make this a superb exhibition.
One of the interesting things about the exhibition and the book is that the images are largely organised according to themes. This means we can see historical and contemporary images presented side by side.
It also provides information about the individual artists.
