The Physick Garden: Ancient Cures for Modern Maladies | Alice Smith
The Physick Garden is in full bloom. in Alice Smith's new book, she explores the folklore of the plant world - weeding out the botanical cures and herbal treatments that have, for centuries, helped to heal our ills.
The book, illuminated by Alice's brilliantly surreal and arcane illustrations, takes us on a tour around the human body where wormwood aids the abdomen and pennyroyal peps up the pelvis. Inside this Physick Garden we get to learn about the curious medicinal pasts of 80 plants - and it's quite a trip.
