herbal folklore guide: call for collaborators

Posted: July 23 2013

Open call for drawings of medicinal plants!
For a practical compendium for natural healing practices to be compiled in a printed and bound print publication including gardens, gardeners, healing practitioners, and a wide-range of do-it-yourself guides (beer brewing, salve-crafting, tea and oil infusion, tinctures compresses).
Plant drawings will be used as a resource, so accuracy and actual likeness to specific plants is somewhat desired -- on the other hand, artistic interpretations are welcome and encouraged. Ideally, it would be great to include three separate diagrams; one of the whole plant, one for the flower and one for the root.
Each plant will be featured on a half page (8.5" x 5.5"), so drawings can be made any size, and will be scaled to fit alongside the information for each herb. If you are scanning drawings, please make sure they are at a resolution of at least 300 dpi or higher!
draw as many plants as you’d like!
