Lilium, rose, poppy and mallow. All of the 200 pages of Flower Notes have transparencies of details of four splendid plates from the Hortus Amoenissimus by Franciscus de Geest (1638-1699).
A delicate presence for each moment of your day.
The history of botany, and disclosing its most rare and precious aspects, has always been part of the Aboca project. §
The Hortus Amoenissimus, which Franciscus de Geest painted at the end of the 17th century, contains more than 200 illustrations of flowers Still today it amazes through the freshness of the colours and the grace of the marks with which each species is drawn. The reproduction of the original manuscript, held at Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale, Rome, was curated and published by Aboca Edizioni.
