The Victorians were great plant-hunters and butterfly catchers, mounting the preserved specimens neatly under glass, side by side in rows , to more easily observe and contrast nature’s infinite variety. Whenever you come across a good idea, I say, steal it.
This collection is based on Dottor Jazz’s label pictures, photographically retouched and resized. Colours aren’t perfect matches because of many varying originals sourced from the Internet. (There are some mixed labels not addressed here yet, subject to further work)
