We love: The Vegetable Garden

Tvg_4We are passionate about growing our own vegetables particularly from seed, and love it even more if the seed packets have beautiful illustrations.

The Vegetable Garden is a gorgeous loose leaf book from one of our favourite publishing companies Taschen, and contains reproductions of illustrations commissioned by Parisian seed company Vilmorin-Andrieux & Cie in the late 1800s. At the height of its success the company employed 15 specialist painters/Naturalists and the images are not only beautiful, they provide an interesting history of old varieties of fruit and vegetables.

Tvg_3The book comes in a box set of 46 prints which would be lovely to either keep as a book or mount in frames.
