Welcome to the museum! These are one of my favourite books and I can recommend them for anyone who loves detailed illustrations of nature. They are great for kids and a total pleasure to look at for adults, as we can all learn so much from them. This box set includes two exquisite books to loose yourself in: Botanicum and Animalium, in a hard-case with additional set of 8 lovely prints ready for framing. the books have soft covers so they are easy to lift despite their substantial size.
A little bit about the books:
Animalium: there are more than 160 animal specimens to be
discovered in this book, the first in a series of virtual museums. Wander the
galleries - open 365 days a year - and discover a collection of curated exhibits on
every page, accompanied by informative text. Each chapter features a different
branch of the tree of life, from the simple sponge to the enormous elephant.
Botanicum: Big Picture Press's Welcome to the Museum series, Botanicum is a stunningly curated guide to plant life. With artwork from Katie Scott, Botanicum gives readers the experience of a fascinating exhibition from the pages of a beautiful book.
From perennials to bulbs to tropical exotica, Botanicum is a wonderful feast of botanical knowledge complete with superb cross sections of how plants work.
Take yourself on the adventure of discovering flora and fauna of the World!
