Review: The media could not be loaded. Don’t think I have ever done an Amazon review but this book is so brilliant I now want every book that phaidon have made. I searched for ages to find a book like this to become a stable part of the art department. I’m an art teacher so this not only has excellent images but a really good selection of good quality artists all in one place. I hadn’t realized but it’s the same format as “the art book” and family and we all know how excellent they are!

Review: Lovely book but it arrived from France with the dust cover looking a bit worse for wear. Almost second hand. But the actual book was fine and the illustrations were beautiful. Did not return because I didn't have time or thought it was that bad.

  • Waterstones Plant Names Explained

    Price: £14.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: If you, like many gardeners, have a fascination for plant names and their derivations, but stop short of wanting to study botanical nomenclature in great depth, this book is for you! Precise naming is essential to be able to identify plants accurately and most gardeners have at least some knowledge of 'botanical Latin'. But a plant's full botanical name does much more than give it a unique label. The name can often tell you where the plant originated, who discovered it, what shape it is, and much else besides. What's more, the name can be used and understood anywhere in the world. This is a book to have with you at the garden centre, and one to keep beside your bed for an entertaining read. Plant Names Explained is an indispensable guide and makes the subject accessible, enjoyable and fun. It shows not only how plant names work, but also how you can make use of them in entertaining as well as practical ways. A selective alphabetical listing of botanical names and their explanations is accompanied by features exploring cultivar names, with translations of foreign terms and lists of plants you can link with special occasions and celebrations, or with personal names. Other features highlight the places, people and plant characteristics that lie behind the names: gardens and nurseries, countries and cities, plant hunters and gardeners, colours, characteristics and habitats. Plant Names Explained is an essential and fascinating guide to the subject. What may at first seem a dry but necessary convention is revealed to be a way of opening up the intriguing world of plants.

  • Waterstones Roots to Seeds

    Price: £40.00

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: Since 1621, and the foundation of the Oxford Botanic Garden, Oxford has built up an outstanding collection of plant specimens, botanical illustrations and rare books on plant classification, collecting and plant biology. These archives, and the living plants in the Garden, are integral to the study of botany in the University. This book profiles the botanists and collections which have helped to transform our understanding of the biology of plants over the past four centuries, focusing on plant classification, experimental botany, building botanical collections, agriculture and forestry and botanical education. Highlights include a selection of Ferdinand Bauer's renowned illustrations for Flora Graeca - an extraordinarily lavish and detailed eighteenth-century botanical publication of plants found in the Eastern Mediterranean - and rare plant specimens from the herbaria, such as Fairchild's Mule (the first artificially created hybrid plant). Together with seventeenth-century herbals, elegant garden plans, plant models and fossil slides, these items from the archives all help to tell the story of botanical science in Oxford and the intrepid botanists who devoted themselves to the essential study of plants.
