Z loved this, as did I. Had a long conversation with a library staffer, who had looked at it before we picked up our hold. Reminded us of Deyrolle . . . and Z pulled out his Marine Bio Coloring Book right after reading it.

From the anatomy of a tulip or an apple tree to that of a hedgehog or starfish, the botanical and zoological images in this collection are captivating with their curious visuals and intricate details. With a compelling introduction about the history of educational charts and their production, The Art of Instruction provides a glimpse into a rich, significant heritage and will enlighten those with an interest in art, design, science, or natural history. -- Book Description from Website.… (more)
