Study Room resource: Botanical illustration

Prints and drawings, including fashion illustrations, architectural drawings, design drawings, watercolours, posters and much more, not on display in the galleries, can be seen in the Prints, Drawings and RIBA Architecture Study Rooms. To make it easier for teachers and lecturers to access the most popular material with groups, we have developed themed resources which contain original prints and drawings.
