About the Book

‘The Soul is there in the dust, the red rocks and blue sky, the wind and rain, in the dunes and salt-lakes, in the people, and in the plant and animal life, waiting to be experienced, revealed, revered, by those who would look.’ — Stephen D Hopper

The perfect book for anyone interested in botanical art, natural history or fauna and wildflowers.

Praise for the book
‘You never know what Philippa is going to bring back from her trips because few other botanical artists venture far from the car,’ — The Sunday Times

‘Nikulinsky’s biological illustrations … bring the beauty of
Australia’s desert flora and wildlife to vibrant detail.’ — SciTech Book News

‘… for readers, who forget how much of this continent is, in fact, “arid area” … this book is discovery,’ — The Bulletin
