The Art of Botanical Illustration

The Art of Botanical Illustration

W. Blunt and W.T. Stearn edition 1994

Revised and enlarged by Professor W.T. Stearn, this major work first published in 1950 is still considered the classic book on the subject. It provides a survey of the development of botanical illustration from palaeolithic times to the highly scientific works of today. This book tells the (almost) complete story of the evolution of botanical illustration over a period of some 3000 years. It provides a “comprehensive, critical and well-illustrated survey” of how plants and flowers have been illustrated over time by different artists in different places for different purposes.
