One of the best experiences of my life!

A reader at Kew Library, Art and Archives looking at C19th printing woodblocks from Hooker’s Ic. Pl., Maria Sibylla Merian's Metamorphosis insectorum Surinamensium (1705), and original illustrations from Chinese artists and Botanical magazine (early 1800s to 1900s).

Many thanks to Lynn Parker and Julia Buckley for all of their help and expertise!
