Our take on 300-Year-Old Botanical Illustrations
Prior to the invention of photography, botanical illustration was the only way of visually recording the world’s many species of plant life. Today, science books are full of highly detailed photographs—often taken with a macro lens or even a microscope—allowing us to discover the fascinating forms of flora and fauna. However, before these advances in technology, it was artists and illustrators who were depended on to share the beauty of botany with the world. The job requires great artistic skill, attention to fine detail, and technical horticultural knowledge.
In the past, illustrations of plant life were used by physicians, pharmacists, botanical scientists, and gardeners for identification, analysis, and classification. While these works are not as relevant to researchers today, we have transformed them into art works that you can enjoy in your home of office as Wall Decals. We have enlarged the images and enhanced their quality to create vibrant and lively art pieces that you can enjoy today in your own layout.
All our decals are hand-made in-house by us right here in Hastings and are removable with a matte finish. They are also printed with water-based inks which are odourless and safe for you and the environment. We think that’s pretty cool.
