The projects from vegetables to stunning flowers such as orchids are all excellently reproduced and will have you reaching for your paints. The practical information should ensure your success. This is an excellent book for the budding or experienced botanical illustrator alike and one that I shall use frequently to enhance my own limited skills. This 144 page book includes a resources list to obtain materials. I highly recommend this beautiful volume that is well worth the money. Top Amazon Reviewer, 17 Nov 2008.From the Publisher:
