Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0304361666, Paperback)

The book chronicles the revival in popularity of this genre and features most of the main artists working today. Sherwood's collection, encompassing work from around the globe, is the finest held in private hands. The extended introduction touches on the revival, on the quality of this new work and compares it with the great artists of the past, like Redoute, Ehret, and the Bauer brothers. The main body of the book contains pictures from 66 different botanical artists. In her own distinctive style, Dr Sherwood profiles each artist, often describing how she came to collect the artist's work and how the artist's work has evolved.
