Description

A Coming of Age is a celebration of the work of the first 18 years of The Eden Project Florilegium Society, fondly called the ‘Flori’ by its members. The Society was founded in 2000 to record plants in Cornwall and those held at The Eden Project in particular, which opened its gates to the public in the same year. There are over 140 paintings in the archives donated by 31 different artists, many of whom exhibit nationally and internationally and hold RHS Gold medals for their work. “Each artist donates their time and their paintings generously to The Archives and The Trustees of The Eden Project. In gratitude and in order to acknowledge their generosity, skill and talent, this book has been written and compiled to help bring their work to a wider audience and demonstrate the quality of botanical illustration held by the Trustees. I hope it inspires our current members (of which there are 22 actively painting) to continue to paint and document this inspirational collection of plants, and others to join. This is my gift to these very special people.” Ros Franklin, Chairman of the ‘Flori’.
