Just received two new books on botanical illustration. Contemporary Botanical Artists, and the more recent A Passion for Plants. Both books about the collections of Shirley Sherwood, the patron of the arts, who is also credited as the author. The essays are mildly interesting but of little technical value. The reproductions are excellent. Many recognizable names. The paintings and drawings range from superb to mostly very good to a few that are more glitz than substance. I highly recommend either of these volumes for one's library. $29.95 each--almost a bargain by today's standards. Joan
