From the cover: “Recently, an exquisite volume of Victorian flower paintings has come to light in Denmark, the treasured heirloom of the descendants of Fanny Robinson, a talented amateur artist who is known to have been painting in Norfolk in the 1840s. Her “Book of Memory”, as she called it, combines evocative poetry — including extracts from Keats and Shakespeare — with fine illumination and, most startling of all, exquisite watercolour studies that are both botanically accurate and a perfect example of a high Victorian style of floral illustration.”
