Frances Lincoln partners with RHS

The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) has announced that long-term licensee Frances Lincoln, the publisher of illustrated books, has produced three new ranges of illustrated RHS books and stationery.

Frances Lincoln has launched the RHS Exotic range, comprised of a set of notecards with envelopes, a journal and a notebook, followed by a range of wrapping-paper books and a rose notebook. The company’s licence is a global one; the RHS range will be distributed in the USA, Europe, Australia and a number of other markets, as well as the UK.

The Rose wrapping-paper book and rose notebook were developed to celebrate the release of the RHS publication, The Rose, a book by RHS Historian Brent Elliot, and subtitled A History of the World’s Favourite Flower in 40 Captivating Roses with Classic Texts and Rare Beautiful Prints. All the products in the three ranges feature original botanical illustrations, from the RHS Lindley Library. 

Frances Lincoln Publishers has been creating illustrated books since 1979, including The Children's Garden and Allotment Planner.

Publisher Andrew Dunn said: "The RHS Lindley Library and Brent Elliott’s marvellous new history The Rose have been wonderful sources of inspiration for these new ranges. We are delighted to be supporting the RHS and its admirable aim of making the UK a greener, more beautiful place."

RHS licensing executive Shereen Llewellin said: "Frances Lincoln is rightly famed for the quality of its illustrated books and it has done a wonderful job of bringing RHS Lindley Library art to these beautiful ranges of books and stationery. I’m sure these books, cards, journals and notebooks will inspire and delight lovers of gardening and beautiful design — and roses — across the UK."
