About the book

This delightful book brings together 60 years of artist Edward Bawden’s illustrations, posters and linocuts of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. It presents a light-hearted social history of Kew, peopled with the many Hanoverian kings, queen and princes who lived here, as well as famous people who passed through its gates such as the 3rd Earl of Bute, Joseph Banks the botanist, Fulke Greville the poet, as well as the novelist Fanny Burney and scientist William Hooker.
