Based on the unique collection of orchids in Britain’s famed Kew Gardens, this stunning boxed set features a fascinating book plus 40 frameable prints.
 
Orchids have been cultivated at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, for more than two centuries, resulting in one of the world’s most diverse and comprehensive collections. This breathtaking set celebrates those beguiling plants—and the “orchidmania” among gardeners that persists till today. A paperback tells the tale of 40 different specimens, enhanced with classic texts and letters from Kew’s archives and botanical illustrations by such great orchid artists as John Day and Walter Hood Fitch, Sarah Drake, and Marianne North. Forty of the best artworks have also been turned into separate prints, presented with the book in a handsome collector’s box.
