RHS Desk Diary 2013

Author(s): Brent Elliott


The Royal Horticultural Society Diary 2013 focuses on works of art done on vellum. Before paper was invented vellum was the commonest surface used for writing or painting on. Paintings on vellum have a luminosity and richness that is quite unlike paper. The diary features works of art on vellum which date mainly from the 18th century. The collection includes images from a book of botanical paintings belonging to the Empress Josephine, as well as others by professional artists and wealthy amateurs. The diary is week to view and includes an internal storage pocket and ribbon marker. It is available in desk and pocket formats.
