Description
Royal Collection Trust

An exquisite colouring book with 43 colourful natural history and botanical illustrations by English naturalist Mark Catesby (c.1682-1749) to inspire your own shading on black-and-white line drawings. From a ‘Summer Red-Bird and Western Plane Tree’ to a monarch butterfly with delicate orchids and a plumeria ‘Temple tree’: be inspired to add colour to plants, birds, and insects. Each black-and-white image is based on watercolours Catesby created c.1722-26 for his ‘Natural History of Carolina, Florida and the Bahama Islands’; and set alongside a full colour reproduction of the original. Catesby noted that his work’s ‘Flat, tho’ exact manner’ was true to the life he observed on his travels in America. The illustrations for this colouring book are amongst those purchased by George III and now a part of the Royal Collection.
