Hemlock and Water Lily are my favorites.

Grayscale versions of these would make a great coloring book.

Sorry mediareport, I didn't see that you got there first. I understand if this gets deleted, though the spread on BO is way handier in terms of of just gawking at the pretty pictures.

I hope it doesn't get deleted; I love the guy! Just pointing out that there's lots more Grandville around.

Ah this was one of my favorite books growing up. Whenever anyone tells me that tulips are their favorite flower, I think of the tulip story and how tulips are weak.
