The goal of the authors of this handbook is to encourage readers to learn to draw. Their brief instructions include how to find the pleasure in drawing plants; the modest tools needed in the endeavor (pencil and paper); the various steps in creating a suitable drawing; and finishing the work when a sketch is completed. Each illustrated page provides a panel of progressive drawings of a given subject, leading to the finished work.
