"Grass, flower, seaweed, leaf- every plant is a perfect form. When pressed to paper, its perfection is dramtically captured and revealed- as a work of nature, but with a kinship to art. The Pressed Plant is the first book to demonstrate this aesthetic phenomenon through hundreds of stunning illustrations that date from the eighteenth to the twentieth century, most of which have never been published."---
