Back in May I posted a story about the exhibition of Botanica Magnifica in the Smithsonian Libraries’ exhibition cases in the National Museum of Natural History. Well, in this month’s Fine Books & Collections Magazine, Botanical Magnifica is featured in the cover story, "The Botanist’s Desire" by Jonathan Shipley (No. 34, July/August 2008).
In addition to a number of reproductions from the work, the article describes the process used by photographer Jonathan Singer in creating the work. Smithsonian botany curator John Kress also discusses the importance of the work.
