This encyclopedia provides a complete overview of the flowering plants of Europe, through the presentation of 865 plates and portraits of indigenous or naturalized wild plants. These portraits illustrate all botanical families present on the continent, i.e. 133 families.
This monumental work (3.96kg) is the result of more than 20 years of work by Pierre and Delia Vignes, who photographed all these plants in very high definition throughout the seasons, so as to be able to present them in the form of a new kind of herbarium, where all the details and characteristics are made visible.
Each plate reveals the intrinsic beauty of the plants and is a work of art in itself.
