More Gorgeous Free Botanical Illustrations

Hello natural beauties and scent lovers from far and wide. I hope you’re all well and happy. The past couple of weeks I’ve written about beautiful free botanical illustrations from the 19th Century book by Kolher, and my free resource about essential oils and tarot. Continuing on from that theme I’d like to share another beautiful online resource for flora and fauna illustrations from the past. Alerted by a Facebook post, an article by mymodernmet.com, showed me to the flickr stream of the Biodiversity Heritage Library showing so many absolutely gorgeous illustrations. Check some out below.
