Botanical illustrations unite the scientific world with the skills of the artist. This is a collection of illustrations from this centuries-old artistic tradition of portraying plants for scientific purposes, recording vanishing species for historical record, and capturing the beauty and inspiration experienced in the flora of our world. Before the invention of photography, botanical illustration was the only way of visually recording the world's many species of plant life using the attention to fine detail and technical horticultural knowledge of artists and illustrators who shared the beauty of botany with the world. The art of botanical illustration remains popular today as skilled artists are able to represent clearly what may not easily be seen in a photograph.
