Botanical art was an important aid in helping plant hunters describe their latest discoveries. As botanical knowledge and botanical art advanced, so did the technology used to reproduce this information and to share it around the world. We will examine wood block prints in herbals to modern digital printing from the library collections. Learn to identify the techniques employed for publication as well as fine art. Tea and goodies will be served.
