Kew Gardens Beautiful Flowers Colouring Book


Item# 9781784283230

      Back to previous pageBACK
From sweet Rosa alba and Camellia reticulate to flashy Amaryllis pardina and deeply hued Higginsia regalis, here are 44 floral engravings to colour. For more than 100 years, after moving publication to Kew in 1841, the hand-drawn and coloured illustrations in Curtis's Botanical Magazine were made from live specimens at the Royal Botanic Gardens. This colouring book presents 44 of the magazine's beautiful full-page illustrations-nearly all of them drawn by the prolific Walter Hood Fitch-pairing the final coloured versions with the uncoloured engravings. Use the original as a guide for your colouring efforts, or strike out on your own and give these floral drawings a personal creative touch.
