Spring has finally returned to campus, and it has brought us many lovely flowers!
Not to be outdone by Mother Nature, Special Collections has a volume of animated flowers for your visual enjoyment:
Les Fleurs Animees is a two volume set printed in 1847, which contains anthropomorphic images of flowers as women. Here we have pictures of beautiful tulips and violets, and their human counterparts:
Enjoy the beautiful blooms on campus! You can see many of these flowers on your way into the Regenstein Library.
We’ll leave you with one last image from Les Fleurs Animees; thankfully there is no human version of this anywhere on campus!
