Vegetable Teratology Colouring Book
|Status||out of print|
Based on Maxwell T. 'Master's Vegetable Teratology: An Account of the Principal Deviations from the Usual Construction of Plants' (1869), this colouring book examines the morphological potential of vegetables and fruits, plants and flowers. It gathers a selection of full-page botanical illustrations, a glossary, and a short text by Robin Watkins. The historical images once served to outline notions of what was to be considered acceptable growth behaviour; now they take on a new role by subtly embracing the aberration of form in its various colourations and questioning what is normal about normalcy.
