Botanical masterworks from the National Library of Vienna
In the pursuit of knowledge of pleasure, the art of botanical illustration has always required not only meticulous draughtsmanship, but also a rigorous scientific understanding. To record the form, colour, and details of different plant species requires both accuracy and aesthetic skill.
From Byzantine manuscripts to 19th century masterworks, this Bibliotheca Universalis edition traces the botanical tradition with the finest botanical manuscripts from the National Library of Vienna. In exquisite color reproductions, it showcases the skill involved in portraying plants for scientific purposes, for the historical record of vanishing species, or for the simple celebration of the beauty and variety of the natural world.
