"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
