And now for a project that, try as I might to consider it in terms of Andrew Rae’s consistently brilliant illustration work, reminds me irrevocably of that bit in Notting Hill when – on one of his many disastrous dates before he’s finally reunited with Julia Roberts – Hugh Grant takes a woman out for dinner who refuses to eat her carrots, proclaiming: “I can’t, I’m a fruitarian, and this carrot has in fact been murdered.”
Because they do look a bit the fruit and veg of your dreams, don’t they? Inexplicably chatty-looking and gifted with hands, feet, eyes, ears and other such humanly body parts, Andrew’s Botany illustrations bring to life various flora making them into tiny little characters worthy of a whole children’s book. Brilliant. It’s almost enough to put you off your dinner.
