Images: Botanicals

This is a page from an antique design book. I think the color scheme is beautiful. It certainly could be used today. The layout is meant to be a reference, showing various stages of growth and season. Note the tiny florets just below the berry bunches.

I like to use these kinds of images in collage, jewelry, cards or as a study for a silhouette. The circular insert showing the tree structure is a nice touch. The page itself is a lesson in design.
