The Butterfly Book is a collection of butterflies drawn by some of the UK’s most famous artists, designers, writers, actors, politicians and other famous faces. The book was written, compiled and edited by art historian Laura-Jane Foley.


It is such a varied and interesting collection of butterflies.  Imaginations have run riot and the illustrated butterflies are as varied as the names! Grayson Perry, Kate Winslet, Tony Blair, Peter Blake, Mary Fedden, Maggi Hambling, Ricky Gervais and many other household names make this an art book like no other. Some contributors, including award-winning writers Jeanette Winterson and Ann Widdecombe, have provided poetry and their contributions are incredibly personal and thoughtful. 


All the profits from the sale of The Butterfly Book went to the Claire Elizabeth Wadley Forget-Me-Not Fund for Leukaemia Research.
