old Fraser

I have not yet been able to photograph the flower of a Fraser magnolia but here's an old illustration from “Curtis's Botanical Magazine,” (London, 1809, volume 30, plate 1206).

How could I capture it any better with a mere camera?

Started by William Curtis in 1787, the periodical that bears his name is the longest running botanical magazine in the world. Its publication continues to this day.
