That Bunny's Bounty

LUSH, MAGNIFICENT VEGETABLES for a bountiful Rabbit year.

What 18th century lapins could have only dreamed about: page after fruitful page of Vilmorin-Andrieux & Cie's Album Vilmorin. Les Plantes Potagères.

Stemming from a collaboration between plant connoisseur Philippe Victoire de Vilmorin and his father-in-law Pierre Andrieux, the king's botanist, the Album Vilmorin features plates by artist-naturalists from the Jardins des Plantes. Rich in both horticultural information and splendid illustration, the compilation serves as an artistic resource for both researchers, as well as gardening and art enthusiasts.

And rabbits of all races and vegetarians too!

If you happen to be averse to veggies, I wish you a bountiful year nonetheless.

Nice art. It does have that classic "old days" look to it..
