Wild Flowers of the British Isles

Illustrated and Written by H. Isabel Adams F.L.S.
Revised by James E. Bagnall, A.L.S.

Published by William Heinemann, London
MCMX
(1910)


Original 110-year-old antique Arts and Crafts color prints

SHEET SIZE: APPROX. 8 1/2 X 11 inches (about 21.5 x 28 cm)
IMAGE AREA: APPROX. 6 X 8 inches (about 15.3 x 20.4 cm)

Perfect size for easy matting and framing. Standard 8 1/2 x 11 mats and frames would be an inexpensive way to frame these beautiful arts and crafts botanicals!
Great for wall groupings, kitchens, sun rooms, etc.

The wealth of talented artists in botanical illustration never ceases to amaze and H. Isabel Adams is another outstanding discovery. A member of the Botanical Society of the British Isles and a fellow of the Linnaean Society, she was a graduate of Birmingham Art School. She worked in the Arts and Crafts style, designing bookplates and children's books: Little Red Riding Hood and the History of Tom Thumb.

Not much is known about this artist, but the beauty of the Arts and Crafts botanicals speak to her talent!

“We have seen few flower drawings (always excepting Curtis's Flora Londinensis) that have given us so much pleasure to look at. From one to half-a-dozen plants are figured on a page; but Miss Adams manages to keep the character of each species distinct, and the grouping is often full of skill and grace. We have nothing but praise for the colouring, especially the various greens. The yellow of the rock-rose is beautiful, and the more subdued mauves and pinks are excellent.”
– part of an article published in 1907 by the Spectator (Archives)
