Product Description
Elizabeth Blackwell: A Curious Herbal 2021 Engagement Calendar
These delicate drawings of flowers, fruits, leaves, and roots were once considered medical literature. When Elizabeth Blackwell drew these medicinal herbs in the early eighteenth century, she became the first woman to create an illustrated medical text. She was motivated by necessity: supporting her young child while funding her husband’s release from prison. It worked. Although her husband soon got himself into more trouble, Blackwell and her stunning drawings became known across Europe. They were heavily referenced by physicians and apothecaries, and now, nearly three hundred years later, the images are timelessly beautiful. The peony on this cover is no longer the best comfort to a teething child (draped around their neck, by the way), but each of the thirty-two images in this calendar will brighten anyone’s spirits throughout the year.
