Item description for Flowers of the Amazon Forest: The Botanical Art of Margaret Mee by Margaret Mee...

Flowers of the Amazon Forests: The Botanical Art of Margaret Mee illustrates sixty of her major works with additional sketches painted whilst in the immense, yet vulnerable, rainforests of the Amazon. The accompanying text, taken from the travel diaries she kept during her extensive - and often solo - adventures through Amazonas, recounts her comments on the flowers, trees, birds and animals of the region as well as her thoughts on the rapidly disappearing Brazilian forest, thus setting in context her botanical illustrations.

Reviews - What do customers think about Flowers of the Amazon Forest: The Botanical Art of Margaret Mee?

Flowers of the Amazon Forest: The Botanical Art of Margaret Mee   Nov 2, 2007
This is a nice book with many of Margaret Mee's paintings included in good color reproduction, but a very similar but more expansive book, entitled "Margaret Mee's this site: The Diaries of an Artist Explorer," published also by Kew Gardens, is a better buy.
Margaret Mee was a hero  Feb 13, 2007
Margaret Mee was an amazing woman who explored the this site in Brazil, collected and sketched plants native to that region, and produced lovely botanical illustrations of these plants. She endured many hardships during her expeditions, but always persevered in her work. She was also a champion for conservation. This book contains excerpts from her diaries, photos from her travels and reproductions of her sketches and finished art. The reproductions of the artwork are the best of all of her books that I have seen. The colors are bright and fresh. In other reproductions the colors, especially greens are flattened and the plants look one dimensional. These have a full range of values and show off the work to its advantage. Definitely a five star book for me.
