Botanical sketchbooks by helen and william bynum
Botanical SketchbooksI have always been in awe of those who can sketch, draw or paint botanical subjects. Their book presents us with an exquisite visual compendium of botanical sketches, providing a glimpse into the first-hand adventures of over 80 artists from around the world from the 15th to the 20th century. While highly finished drawings and paintings frequently feature in histories of botanic art, what makes this book even more interesting, indeed a treasure, is that the authors have collected together preparatory sketches, first impressions and creative thoughts on paper, that are rarely seen. Herein lies the value of this lovely publication as it brings these personal and vividly spontaneous records back into light. The remarkable images in the book are sourced from the unparalleled collections of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, as well as a number of museums, archives and libraries. They have been carefully curated by the authors, many of them rarely, if ever, reproduced before.
