This book of twelve tear-out postcards features paintings of fruits and plants from around the world drawn from the Shirley Sherwood Collection and the Kew Collection. The latter collection brings the book works from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, including plates from the 1863 first edition of Berthe Hoola van Nooten’s influential Fleurs, Fruits et feuillages chosis de la flore et de la pomone de l’Ile de Java. From the Shirley Sherwood Collection, meanwhile, are drawn works of contemporary art, including paintings of the development of fruit that required months of patient observation and stand as testaments to the renewed power and attraction of botanical art in our time.

A wonderful treat for any plant lover, this book is sure to delight both sender and recipient.
