Abbeville Press Inc.,U.S., United States, 2009. Book Condition: as new. 510 full-color illustrations (illustrator). "Botanica Magnifica" features two hundred and fifty stunning photographs by Hasselblad Laureate-winner Jonathan Singer. Inspired by the size and scope of "Audubon's Birds of America", the original edition of "Botanica Magnifica" was published as double-elephant folio. Now Singer's magnificent photos are available to the public for the first time in this edition, a baby-elephant folio. Like the larger edition, this volume is organized into five sections: Orchidaceae, presenting the full diversity of orchids, one of the largest and most exquisite families of flowering plants; Florilegium, portraying the complexity and beauty of flowers; Proteus, named for the shape-changing sea god of Greek mythology because it illustrates plant forms perfectly adapted for survival; Zingiberaceae, a tribute to the ginger family, whose members include both common tropical plants and rarities threatened with extinction; and, Botanicus, a selection of beautiful and bizarre specimens from the renowned botanical research collection of the National Museum at the Smithsonian. Each section is introduced by a gatefold page that displays one extraordinary plant at a luxurious size. N° de ref. de la librería 0908237
