Book 2: Banksia Lady: Celia Rosser, Botanical Artist (2015), Carolyn Landon

This is the story of Celia Rosser, the internationally acclaimed botanical illustrator, who ultimately dedicated her life to painting the entire genus of Banksia. She was the first artist to have embarked on such a significant project, and Celia’s dedication to the task put her at the centre of the Banksia Project at Monash University for 25 years, culminating in the publication of an extraordinary three volume florilegium that became one of the great books of the twentieth century.
