Description

Plants are typically thought of as beautiful, but they can also be deadly, bizarre, rare, and iconic. Brought together in a collection of frameable art prints paired with a book detailing their stories, The Botanical Treasury features forty of the world’s most fascinating plants in a beautiful collector’s box. The illustrations are taken from the Kew art collections and archives and include plants painted in human form, such as the mandrake from the early herbals, stunning tulips from the great botanic artist Ehret, the Australian plant named after Sir Joseph Banks who traveled with James Cook, iconic Japanese lilies by Honzu Zufu, and much more. The Botanical Treasury unveils these plants’ intriguing stories; how they were discovered by intrepid travelers, described, and transported around the globe. Read More
