The art of illustration

Sometimes you stumble over a link to something particularly beautiful.

This time it was via a Facebook link to a digital resource which has been made freely available – of 7,500 watercolour illustrations of varieties of fruits known about and grown somewhere in the world in 1886. The illustrations themselves are generally of a very high quality and some are stunning. Well worth a browse. But be careful, you may need to have an hour or two to spare…

It’s Wimbledon season here in the UK and therefore strawberry season – so here’s just one from the collection to whet your appetite

I am saving the link here as a ‘carrot’ to browse later once all the work I should be doing is done!!
