Botanical illustration is an art form that depicts the color, details and morphology of plant species, and sometimes includes associated fauna. With a background in the life sciences, I have a slight familiarity with vintage botanical drawings, and I was curious to see the various styles that might exist for this type of illustration. This collection consists of 9 representative objects found via ArtsConnectEd and Flickr. They are in order of creation date, and I've added related information and links for those that would like to continue to explore these works and artists. Enjoy!
