About this book

A major collection of contemporary botanical illustration. Forty-one Australian and twenty-three overseas artists have contributed by invitation one or more works of significant plants in the three Sydney botanic gardens. This collection is published to celebrate the bicentenary this year of the gardens. Lovely illustrations, very well-produced. The illustrations were exhibited at the Museum of Sydney from July to October 2016, and at the Shirley Sherwood Gallery at the RBG, Kew, during the first half of 2018.

Please note that we still carry imported stock of the Australian version published in 2016 by Florilegium Books. Kew has published a paperback version in 2018, which is less expensive than the imported version. The books are identical in contents though.
