Do you know who this is? Well I think you should. I think everyone should. She’s Margaret Mee and she’s one of my all-time favorite people and personal heroes. 
In Jenny Keller’s History of Scientific Illustration class at UC Santa Cruz, I learned about this remarkable human for the first time. Margaret was 42 years old when she first traveled to the Amazon rain forests to paint and document rare species of Amazon flora. After remaining couragous and determined after several near-death, terrifying ordeals while in the Amazon (she continued to return 15 times; on her last trip she was nearly 80 years old), she was tragically and ironically killed in a car accident not far from home, in Leicestershire, UK.
I’m ashamed to say I haven’t seen the full Moonflower documentary. I hope to track it down. Here at least is the trailer:

I just bought the most beautiful box set-Natural Histories: Extraordinary Rare Book Selections from the American Museum of Natural History Library, edited by Tom Baione. It includes essays and plates from the library holdings, as well as 40 loose prints. 

I’m in love.
