Flora: Celebrating Our Botanical World - Carlos Lehnebach (Editor), Claire Regnault (Editor), Rebecca Rice (Editor), Isaac Te Awa (Editor), Rachel Yates (Editor)
This big, glorious book mines Te Papa's collections to explore and expand upon the way we think about our botanical world and its cultural imprint. A true treasure, it features over 400 selections by an expert, cross-disciplinary museum curatorial team that range from botanical specimens and art to photography, furniture, jewellery, tivaevae, applied art, textiles, stamps and more.
Flora's twelve essays provide a deeper contextual understanding of different topics, including the unique characteristics of New Zealand flora as well as how artists and cultures have used flora as a motif and a subject over time. Elegant, expert and engrossing.
