This rather beautiful book is an excellent example of what can be produced by the best botanical artists. The Florilegium Society at Sheffield Botanical Gardens is non-selective, which means that it effectively acts as an atelier – members can learn about both plants and how to paint them from their more experienced colleagues, although the archive they create is scrutinised by a selection panel.
This is not an instructional book, but does contain a wealth of top quality illustrations and a great deal of information about the plants included. It should delight any lover of plants or botanical illustration.
