So Steph came across the book of her dreams this morning... Aesthetically pleasing, scientifically accurate images of flora and fauna, photographed unnaturally against block colour (along with a few in their natural environments.)
The first edition of A Guide to the Flora and Fauna of the World was first published in 1973.
It serves as a medium for original studies based principally upon the collections in the Museum and the research of the Institute.
The publication is made up of 55 plates with documents and booklets contained in a hand crafted archival box, and it can be yours for $220.
