Explore over 30 years of Australian Geographic botanical illustrations
Botanical illustration is an amalgam of art and science with lineage stretching back to our earliest attempts to document our existence. Botanical art is taking on a new relevance for its role in documenting plants at risk of disappearing altogether, and it carries with it the poignancy of loss. The inclusion of some fabulous examples of botanical art in AG reflects the increasing popularity of this branch of illustration. Here, we look back on some of our favourites throughout the years.
