Imagine a museum at your fingertips.

From the creators of the hugely popular ‘Welcome to the Museum’ series that is responsible for Waterstones’ bestselling children’s non-fiction books Animalium and Historium comes Botanicum; a feast for the eyes and a doorway into our natural world.

Botanicum is a stunningly curated guide to plant life. With artwork from Katie Scott of Animalium fame, Botanicum gives readers the experience of a fascinating exhibition from the pages of a beautiful book.

From perennials to bulbs to tropical exotica, Botanicum is a wonderful feast of botanical knowledge complete with superb cross sections of how plants work. A perfect gift for amateur botanists of any age and a stunning collector’s piece with artwork that begs to be lingered over.

Now fans of Botanicum’s exquisite artwork can collect their own exhibition with the Botanicum Postcards collection: 50 vibrant postcards to send to friends or decorate your walls.
