For Book and Art lovers

Treasures of Botanical Art
Icons from the Shirley Sherwood and Kew Collections

Another beautiful book for those who love books and botanical illustration. The 272 pages are filled with the history of botanical painting, beauty and science. It is richly illustrated (over one hundred images) from late 1400s through today. The book is not available in USA yet, but you can get it through Amazon.uk or Kew Gardens. On Kew Gardens site you can also se images from the book and photos from the gallery opening.
