The label 'Linnaeus' has been given to the book which fits the following description. It is an open backed loop-bound booklet made of handmade heavyweight artists' watercolour papers from the Two Rivers Mill in Somerset, UK. It is ~ in effect ~ a sampler of some of the products from that mill. The name Linnaeus is simply an identifier for this particular book and has no relation to the work of Carl Linneous.
The paper from which the book is prepared is made in the Imperial range of sizes ~ these particular sheets are 20"x16" which are cut down to produce a book of size 8" wide by 5" high. The covers are infused with a mixture of cornflower, larkspur and marigold petals.
