Hooray for Pen and Ink!

Plantas Nativas de Mata Atlantica com Propreadades Medicinais is a beautiful guide book describing 20 medicinal plants from Fundação Santo André campus, Santo Ande, Brazil. The botanical characteristics (with taxonomical standing) and medicinal use is written by Prof. Dra. Dagmar Santos Roveratti.

The 20 whole-page, absolutely beautiful, pen and ink renderings are by Klei Sousa. Klei Sousa got the 2nd placement in the Margaret Flocton award competition 2009. See also the earlier entry in this blog, link. The book is in Portuguese and can also be found in DBG’s library. You can see more of Klei's work in the BI-Facebook.
