This beautiful pocketbook from Kew offers a snapshot into the prickly world of cacti, from desert giants to flowering splendour. 40 botanical paintings of this popular group of plants are gorgeously reproduced from Kew’s Library, Art and Archives.

The Library, Art and Archives at Kew is one of the most extensive botanical libraries in the world, with the oldest item dating back to the 1370s. In this new pocketbook series from Kew, each book presents 40 botanical paintings from the collection, illustrating the variety within each plant group, as well as the diversity of the collection and artistic styles.

An introduction by Kew expert Olwen M. Grace provides an overview of cacti, and detailed captions accompany each painting, making this a charming keepsake.

The luxury finish on these books make them a must-have gift item, printed on uncoated paper and with a cloth and foil finish.
