Botanical Prints by Johannes Zorn

If you follow me on Pinterest ( you know that I've become a bit obsessed with botanical prints.  This is a collection from the artist Johannes Zorn (1739 - 1799) from the first edition of Icones Plantarum Medicinalium published in Nurnberg.  He produced these hand colored copper engravings between 1790 and his death in 1799.
