Flowers from our books

The IPSR library holds a huge collection of books including many rare books. Among them, old books in plant anatomy and taxonomy contain wonderful drawings of plants… While cherry blossom has currently been decorating landscapes all over Japan, we decorated our May IPSR Gallery with the plants that grew and inspired plant biologists a century (or even more) ago. See these magnificent drawings to feel history, appreciate skills of our predecessors and admire eternity of captured flower beauty. To see even more, come and visit our Kurashiki Branch Library
