A book and an amazing floral inspiration. Oh the day when the whole series, framed, lines the hallway. Until then, just two in our bedroom and many happy times perusing through the rest. One of my best book purchases hands down, ever.
The complete reprint of all color plates from Robert John Thornton's monumental work The Temple of Flora, first published in London in 1799. Presented as 33 loose-leaf Elephant folio-sized color prints as well as a booklet including an introduction and explanations of the botanical plates.
