Alongside Bawden's posters and linocuts, the book is illustrated with the contemporary caricatures of Thomas Rowlandson, George Cruikshank and James Gillray as well as botanical illustrations by Franz Bauer, Evelyn Dunbar and others. The book also reproduces in full Bawden's previously unpublished manuscript guide to Kew Gardens, drawn by the artist when he was just 19, and the redrawn illustrations and maps in Robert Herring's 1930 book Adam and Evelyn at Kew."@en ;
