The Botanical Studies

A team of the finest botanical artists from around the world came together to create a set of botanical watercolours celebrating the beautiful plants grown in Highgrove Gardens. The complete set of 124 paintings are collected into a publication of two finely crafted volumes – an achievement that combines the most traditional of bookbinding crafts with the newest lithographic printing technology.  

The Books

Bound by hand and finished with hand-tooled gold leaf, the books are individually made up to the highest standard, and sets are kept at institutions including The Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, Edinburgh, Melbourne and Sydney; The Getty; Huntingdon Library; The Botanical Gardens at Geneva, and the New York Botanical Garden.
