    Hello everyone,
    Guess what I'm looking for? Yes, botanical drawings, specificaly
    cp and proabably colour Victorian period or style. Books or websites or galleries or anything really will do.
    I've had a wee nose round google and past posts but I can't really
    find anything. I'm collecting designs for a massive cp tattoo,
    i'm thinking my whole left arm, neps on the top snakeing down
    with sundews, vft's ect down at the bottom.
    It'd be great if anyone had any info,
    Thanks,
    Rosie

    I lived in Savannah, GA for a little while and there was one antique store there that would cut up pages of old nature books full of those wildlife/plant illustrations done by etching. Sucks that they'd chop the book up and sell each page for a pretty penny, but they were still treasures. I'm wondering now if you can order that sort of thing online somewhere.

    Now you've got me interested... I'll search around. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
