Botanicals Calendar, Wall, Amber Lotus Publishing
Having lived most of her life in less temperate climes, artist Leslie Gignilliat-Day was intrigued by the year-round profusion and variety of West Coast flora. This fascination has been captured in her elegant floral collages, which combine exotic handmade papers with wild and cultivated plant specimens.
Inspired by 18th century botanical engravings, these pictures evoke an era when time was taken to minutely observe the beauty of each delicate leaf and blossom. The text by Lunaea Weatherstone brings that romantic past into the present, combining traditional plant lore with ideas for modern use. This 2006 Wall calendar was published by Amber Lotus Publishing.
