Cactus illustrations

Recommended Posts

I'm always on the hunt for books on cacti, in particular ones with illustrations rather than photos.

I'm going to post some of the nice illustrations I find on the net in this thread, I encourage others (EG I know you've got to have some stuff like this) to do the same.

Probably a good idea not to infringe copyright. here are a lot of older books uploaded as PDFs to legit sites out there.

Looking at some sort of cactus tattoo design myself.

Some pics on google of a Trichocereus flower tattoo.

Would be interested in seeing any ethnobotany tats ;)

Also mate I have a 3rd edition of The Cactaceae by NL Britton and JN Rose. Has some nice illustrations.

When I get a chance I will put some of the drawing up here.

Cheers

Hey centi, can I add one of my own illustrations or does it have to be from a book?
