150,000 Botanical Illustrations Enter the Public Domain

I came across this article posted on Hyperallergic - 150,000 Botanical Illustrations Enter the Public Domain. "The free images, uploaded courtesy of the Biodiversity Heritage Library, include animal sketches, historical diagrams, botanical studies, and scientific research."

I love the detail and depth of the illustrations. So many beautiful illustrations, so little time! You can also follow Biodiversity on instagram or flickr.
