Edward Bawden's Kew Gardens

Based on Edward Bawden’s evocative period illustrations, posters, and linocuts, this charming book brings to life Kew Gardens, the 300-acre site just outside London that encompasses a world-renowned botanical garden, Kew Palace, and much more, all open to the public. Offering a lighthearted social history of Kew, peopled with the many royals who lived at or visited Kew, this is a colorful portrait of a time gone by. Embellished with contemporary caricatures by famed artists Rowlandson and Gillray, as well as early botanical illustrations by Franz Bauer and others, the book also features previously unseen material from Bawden’s personal scrapbooks and an unpublished guidebook to Kew drawn by a 19-year-old Bawden while he was a student at the Royal College of Art.
