Plant drawings on wooden blocks.

Hello Thomas,

Botany in a Day.       Just wanted to let you be aware of what I have been using your book for. I picked up a
(black-and-white) copy of Botany in a Day at Goodwill several weeks ago, and shortly after buying it, at my place of work, they were throwing away a lot of little blocks of southern yellow pine that I saved. This combination inspired me to start drawing the images from your book on the wooden blocks. Thought you might find them interesting, or just think it is fun to know what ripples out from the rock that was thrown in the pond.

      I drew them by hand. Used a sharpie fine point pen. I don't trace anything, just look at the picture and draw what I see. None of them will line up exactly to the original, but I figure that is what makes them mine. The blocks are narrower than the original pictures, so most of them are drawn a little tighter, or have parts excluded.
