150 year-old hand-colored watercolor book plate of a beet root plant. This is one of a number of lovely vegetable images from the same children’s book Lessons From the Vegetable World. I love these old-fashioned colorized images. They are similar in nature to modern-day clip art but have a unique feel.
Public domain food images of this quality are fairly rare. Reusable Art is excited to bring this beet drawing and all of the other vegetable images to your attention. I look forward to seeing what you do with it.
