The botanical illustration of Shihai Sumire was published by botanist Dr. Tomitaro Makino in 1891. The Shihai Sumire, drawn with precise lines throughout, was depicted in the 67th illustration of the 11th collection of the first volume of “Nippon Shokubutsu-shi Zu-hen.”

The purple flower that blooms in the spring in Tosa, Dr. Makino’s birthplace, got its name — Shihai Sumire, “purple-backed violet” in Japanese — from the color of the underside of the leaves. The petals, stems, leaves, roots, stamens, and pistils are carefully observed and depicted, and each flower part is well-balanced.

The rough cloth cover is inspired by the image of a canvas. The botanical illustrations, born from a keen eye for observation, knowledge, and experience, make this techo an ideal companion for your daily life.

The cover is a light hardcover book with some give to it so it still bends.
