La Fábrica presents in association with the Royal Botanical Garden an exquisite collection of drawings made during the Royal Botanical Expedition of the New Kingdom of Granada, led by José Celestino Mutis, which allowed the collection and classification of more than 20,000 plant species native to the current Republic of Colombia.
This book presents a careful selection of magnificent drawings of the highest artistic quality. Its selection and presentation in book format is the culmination of a long process of divulgation of artistic and scientific heritage, which allows us to enjoy this unique sample of the rich Colombian biological diversity.
The book in bilingual edition contains a text by the director of the Royal Botanical Garden, Esteban Manrique.
