Exhibitions at the Botanics

An exhi­bi­tion of book cov­ers, Leaf­ing through Nat­ur­al Scot­land, is at the Gate­way Gallery at the Roy­al Botan­ic Gar­den, Edin­burgh until 21 July 2013. It is curat­ed by Pub­lish­ing Scot­land, and forms part of the cel­e­bra­tions of the Year of Nat­ur­al Scot­land. This week­end is also the last chance to see Nature Print­ed: Exam­ples of Nature Print­ing from the Col­lec­tion of the Roy­al Botan­ic Gar­den, Edin­burgh, at Inver­lei­th House in the Gar­dens. It is the first exhi­bi­tion devot­ed to the Roy­al Botan­ic Gar­den’s col­lec­tion of nature-print­ed books, which is one of the world’s finest: the exhi­bi­tion con­tains plates made by Hen­ry Brad­bury (1832–1860) which have recent­ly been con­served and are being exhib­it­ed for the first time.
