Details

Images from Nature presents a selection of 70 works of art from the Natural History Museum's extensive collections of nearly half a million watercolours, drawings and prints. 

It introduces some of these little known works to a wider audience, as the collections are kept behind the scenes and rarely exhibited. 

The images portrayed give a fascinating insight into how the animal, mineral and plant worlds have been depicted over the last three centuries. They have great aesthetic value and are of considerable scientific and historical importance.

This title is now out of print.
