A selection of the magnificent botanical prints from Banks' Florilgium are currently on display in an exhibition created for the Festival of Flowers. The rare set of prints were donated to the University by the late artist William Sutton and are part of the Macmillan Brown Library collection. This exhibition is a rare opportunity to view these beautiful prints on display alongside some of the actual botanical specimens collected during Cook's voyage over 200 years ago.
Visit the festival site for more information about the exhibition and the Festival of Flowers.
