Jones’ Icones is a stunning six-volume manuscript containing paintings of some of the most notable butterfly and moth collections at the end of the eighteenth century. It is the work of William Jones (1745–1818), a wealthy wine merchant from Chelsea who, on retirement, devoted the rest of his life to studying and painting butterflies and moths. Held in the archives of the Oxford University Museum of Natural History, the volumes contain over 1,500 ink and gouache paintings representing 760 species from around the world. This set of three soft cover notebooks draws from this beautiful collection of images. Nature lovers and writers will rejoice at the high-quality lined paper and saddle stitching, which makes these notebooks perfect tools for on-the-go observation of the natural world.
