About this title

Synopsis:

The long tradition of botanical illustration finds its tribute in this new book, whose publication coincides with the exhibition of botanical illustration at the National Library of Vienna. TASCHEN has chosen 100 works from the library's extensive archives to be reproduced in this masterpiece of botanical book illustration.

Beginning with 6th-century Byzantine manuscripts, it traces the tradition right up through recent publications of the 20th century. With positively exquisite color reproductions, this is truly a divine book.
