About the Illustrations
In my Plantopia section and peppered in other parts of the site, I have used beautiful old botanical illustrations. I am a big fan of the art of botanical painting. Unless otherwise credited, many of the illustrations come from the copyright-free archives of Curtis Botanical Magazine, published in the late 1700s and early 1800s, at the National Agricultural Library’s website. It’s a great preserve of these old illustrations. Other illustrations were found in clip art archives.
Please note, however, that the rest of the photos on this site are mine, and are copyrighted.
