About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and German

Thesaurus Dracularum is a series of 7 elephant folio (12" × 17" or approximately 30.5 cm × 43 cm) format books featuring more than 100 illustrations of orchids of the Genus Dracula. Executed in watercolour by modern orchidologist and botanical illustrator Stig Dalström, we are shown the inner beauty of a truly daunting and at times unsettling genus. These prints and the folios containing them must be seen to be appreciated.

Each of the seven fascicles has a glue-bound spine, which should ease taking out the plates for framing or binding into a larger book. The final volume contains several chapters covering amongst others historical notes, morphology, taxonomy, and keys to the species. In the front is a separate leaflet with instructions for binding.
