This beautiful two-volume set brings together Audrey Eagle's botanical artworks from her best-selling 1975 and 1983 publications. It includes over 170 new paintings, bringing the total number of plants to more than 800 - all in colour and life-size. Flowers, fruits, and other features are shown in superb detail. Comprehensive notes, written in consultation with expert botanists, accompany the illustrations. They provide up-to-date information on each plant's habitat, distribution, identification, nomenclature, and more. This set represents Audrey Eagle's life's work. It is an outstanding contribution to botany in New Zealand - and an essential addition to any library.

Author Biography

Audrey Eagle has been painting New Zealand native plants since 1952. The author of Eagle's Trees and Shrubs of New Zealand in Colour (1975) and a number of other books, Eagle is an active member of botanical and conservation societies such as the Royal Forest and Bird Protection Society, the Nature Conservation Council and the Loder Cup Committee. Eagle's Complete Trees and Shrubs of NZ represents her life's work and the achievement of her goal: to illustrate representatives of all genera of native trees and shrubs.

Review

"Audrey Eagle's meticulous and beautiful renditions of our native flora are acclaimed, but it is in her insistence on accuracy that makes her works on native trees and shrubs such a respected reference books." -- Mary Lovell-Smith The Press
