Summary

The Invention of Nature is a complete visual journey through humankind's depiction of animal and plant life, from the very first cave paintings made over 30,000 years ago to the present.

With over 300 images covering cabinets of curiosity, illustrated herbaria, bestiaries, classical paintings, natural history illustrations, taxidermized specimens and photography, the book weaves together a fascinating chronological story of nature.
