I was vaguely aware of her pictures, but really enjoyed learning about the details of her life and the latest theories about metamorphism in butterflies.

I enjoyed this book very much. In fact, will read it again. The time period/era is of interest and the author has done women a great service by documenting part of the life of this very interesting woman. The subject matter "metamorphosis" was something that Maria Sibylla Merian had pioneered in recording with her beautiful realistic and detailed drawings.
