This beautiful coloring book features over 40 stunning butterfly illustrations of Marian Merian, produced in association with the Royal Collection Trust

Maria Merian was an influential 17th-century scientist who made several incredible entomological discoveries. While her significance has been previously overlooked, her contributions to the field of entomology have recently re-emerged.

At age 52, Merian set sail with her daughter from the Netherlands to South America to study insects in the jungles of what is now known as Suriname. Here she spent nearly two years sketching and observing the creatures she found there. Her detailed illustrations were not only scientifically valuable, but vibrant and beautiful artworks which transported the European public to these exotic locations.

This delightful coloring book includes a selection of her gorgeous butterfly and flora illustrations, carefully selected from the archives of the Royal Collection. Each double-page spread has a black-and-white line drawing to color and the original full-color artwork beside it for reference.

Perfect for nature-lovers, this calming coloring book of butterflies and wildflowers is a wonderful way to wind away the day and appreciate the beauties of the natural world.
