Media reviews

"One of the most comprehensive books on botanical illustrations, this also serves as an introduction to a variety of art mediums."
Library Journal, starred review

"A spectacular how-to book [...] A rose, in short, can be more than a rose."
Booklist, starred review

"The brand-new standard reference book for botanical art instruction."
Botanical Art & Artists

"Staggering in scope [...] engrossing even for a reader who appreciates botanical art but is not an artist."
– The Council on Botanical and Horticultural Libraries

"This comprehensive work covers the gamut of techniques [...] clear, numbered illustrations make projects easy to follow and thoughts on composition, scale and using colour will take students from beginner to expert."
The English Garden

"This is a hefty tome that also carries with it a considerable weight of authority [...] however many other books you have, I think it's fair to say you need this one."
Art Book Review

"The top botanical art compendium – a justifiable claim."
Artists Magazine

"There is much to like in this beautiful guide that covers all the media appropriate to botanical illustration."
The Artist
