At MoPlants.com we believe that gardening and art makes the world a better place. If we can provide the inspiration and information that helps people find new forms of creativity, it’s our little way of giving back.

MoPress at http://www.MoPlants.com is the electronic imprint for national gardening authority and host of DIY Network’s Weekend Gardening show, Maureen “Mo” Gilmer. Online Botanical Illustrations: A Treasure Trove of Free Images for Digital Crafts is the second title created with this cutting-edge concept for eBooks.
“My hobby is hunting for antique botanical illustrations on the Internet for my own crafts. Over the years I’ve found the best online databases of gorgeous and inspiring hand drawn images scanned from ancient manuscripts. The illustrations are free to use but the big problem is finding them if you don’t know where to look. Some of the URLs are buried deep inside massive government sites, but the eBook links get you there in just one or two clicks.”
Any crafter who enjoys the beauty of these classic plant and flower illustrations will find this resource a must-have. From Medieval herbal wood cuts to high Victorian watercolor orchids, the staggering array of choices will keep readers busy surfing for days.
The eBooks database section is preceded by detailed how-to projects for botanical greeting cards, decoupage, decorated journals, collage and needlework. It’s also a money saving resource for scrapbookers looking for free digital images and motifs for their projects. There is vital information on how to download, change, print and store the images gleaned from the Internet.
“EBooks are basically ugly,” says Mo. “That’s a real turn off. Our eBooks feature the design quality of a glossy magazine coupled with the easy-to-use information layout of hard copy books. Created for fast and easy download, this free eBook is essential for any crafter with a computer, online access and a color printer.
The biggest news of all is that Mo is offering her new eBook free of charge. “At MoPlants.com we believe that gardening and art makes the world a better place. If we can provide the inspiration and information that helps people find new forms of creativity, it’s our little way of giving back.”
