Fresh from the Press: Brush with Gondwana

Brush with Gondwana is the first book celebrating the artistic achievements of the Botanical Artists’ Group of WA (BAG), Australia, established in 1992.
The book presents seven permanent members of the BAG: Rica Erickson, Pat Dundas, Ellen Hickman, Penny Leach, Philippa Nikulinsky, Margaret Pieroni and Katrina Syme. Each of them is given a chapter in which their ‘story’ is told and each chapter includes fourteen whole page illustrations from the respective artist. The book is undoubtedly convincing us once again of the fundamental link between botanical art and science.
