Flowers, Butterflies and Insects, Engravings from Erucarum Ortus
Engravings from the Erucarum Ortis by Maria Sibylla Merian (1647 - 1717), with each plate showing a phase in the life-cycle of the species of insect, and the plant or flower with which it is associated. Charming and idiosyncratic, these plates were in fact important contributions to science in their day. They now offer a superb resource for decorative work or as inspiration for illustration, design or decoupage and collage. As with most Dover titles in this site, the cover gives a strong idea of the books contents.
The line is light and the images are very finely detailed.
