Modern microscopy techniques enable us to capture the shape and inner beauty of the leaf traps of carnivorous plants. These plants have intrigued people for many years. It is fascinating to discover sinister plants which eat animals, when you only expect plants to be food. Collectors and explorers documented animal eating plants over the last few centuries to spread information of newly discovered species and pose questions about how and why these plants captured insects. The John Innes Centre Historical Collections contain a special collection of rare books with botanical paintings and drawings documenting the history of Botany, plant research and genetics. These stunning antique prints were found in this archive mostly in Curtis's Botanical Magazine.
