Stunnibg. (Folio, 471*650 mm). This unique publication handsomely depicts Art and Science harmoniously brought together by superlative traditional craftsmanship and design that makes use of 21st century technology. Over seven years, a nominated group of leading botanical artists from around the world were invited to paint selected plants from the garden of TRH The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall at Highgrove in Gloucestershire. The watercolours are reproduced in all their glory, from the exuberant Rhododendron to the more delicate Cistus. The 124 plates of plants, fruits and vegetables are collected in two volumes, each plate accompanied by a scientific botanical text describing their habitat and giving their Latin name and family.
