About the Author:

Illustrator: Katie Scott graduated from University of Brighton in 2011. Her work draws influences from traditional medical and botanical illustration, both in aesthetic and subject matter. Her work plays with the ideas of scientific uncertainty and speculation, fabricating the inner and outer workings of the world. Her illustrations depict a familiar yet fantasy vision of plants, humans and minerals. Author: Professor Katherine (Kathy) J. Willis is Director of Science at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, where she spearheaded the launch of Kew's Science Strategy 2015-2020. Kathy is also Professor of Biodiversity in the Department of Zoology, University of Oxford and an adjunct Professor in Biology at the University of Bergen. She previously held the Tasso Leventis Chair of Biodiversity at Oxford and was founding Director of the Biodiversity Institute. Kathy's research interests focus on the relationship between long-term ecosystem dynamics and environmental change. Kathy has published extensively and has authored or co-authored over 100 scientific publications, including the landmark book The Evolution of Plants, now in its second edition. In August 2015, Kathy was awarded the prestigious Michael Faraday Prize from the Royal Society for her excellent work in science communication.

Review:

This beautifully illustrated book is a comprehensive, curated guide to plant life... it's a feast of botanical knowledge. * BBC Gardener's World * ...Stunningly illustrated guide to plant life. The perfect gift for anyone from three to ninety-three. * Huffington Post * ...a big, beautiful artifact. Gloriously hand-illustrated in the manner of classic Victorian natural history, it offers levels of information suitable for intelligent, inquisitive young minds and begs to be pored over endlessly. * Financial Times * A beautiful and tremendously well written guide to plant life, from algae to the Amazon waterlily... This is a volume to treasure. * The English Garden * This is a splendid exploration of the world of plants by Kathy Willis, from the primitive to the prettiest. The botanical pictures by Katie Scott are lovely. * Evening Standard * A feast of botanical drawing and description. * Metro *
