Anatomia Botanica invites the viewer to experience three species of flowering plants, that shaped the artist’s understanding of her natural environment: the Sacred Lotus, the Red Hibiscus, and the Southern Magnolia.

 

The illustrative style for the images in this book is inspired by sixteenth- to eighteenth-century European and American botanicals, and Mughal architectural motifs. The movable aspect and mechanism used to create the illustrations references sixteenth-century anatomical flap books and function in a similar fashion, revealing the inner anatomy of each plant species talked about in the book.

 

This book has been letterpress printed using reduction linoleum cuts, hand-set metal type with pochoir and photopolymer plates on handmade paper.
