    An ornate bookmark with an image of a rose imprinted, made famous by Mrs Delany.

    In 1772 Mrs Delany (1700-1788) wrote to her niece 'I have a new way of imitating flowers'. With her wonderful eye for botanical detail, she cut minute pieces of paper to create her famous flower collages, now to be enjoyed by everyone in the British Museum.

    Created exclusively for the British Museum, this bookmark is ideal as a gift.
