Comprising more than 500 years of printed botanical illustrations, this stunning compendium of black-and-white and color images begins with medieval illuminated manuscripts and woodcuts from the early days of printing. In addition to images from the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, the collection features highlights from such seventeenth-century classics as Gerard's Herbal, Besler's Hortus Eystettensis, and Crispin van de Pass' Hortus Floridus. Latter-day selections include illustrations from major nineteenth-century works — including the great flower prints of Pierre-Joseph Redouté and hand-colored lithographs by many other artists of the period — as well as the imaginative twentieth-century floral work in the Art Nouveau style of M. P. Verneuil, E. A. Seguy, and others. Detailed bibliographical information concerning every source and biographical information on the artists make this volume a vital reference tool as well as a splendid resource of significant and beautiful botanical illustrations. Students of graphic art and illustration as well as graphic designers, advertising professionals, and horticulturalists will prize this treasury of material from many rare historic sources.

A collection of charming hand-drawn wildflowers from the Victorian Era. In the Victorian era, one father sketched wildflowers in the hills of Oxfordshire, making notes and observations for each flower for his daughters. This book is a compilation of those charming illustrations. You will find heartwarming hand-drawn flowers that still grow wild in many places today, along with a detailed glossary including each flower's botanical name. This book can be used as a fine floral encyclopedia, but it is also a good reference book for designers and illustrators. It also makes a wonderful gift for any lover of flowers or botanical illustration. A Victorian Flower Album was originally published in 1873, and this new edition includes commentary by Hiroshi Unno (author/contributor for PIE International's Western art collection series).
