Cushion designs based on Henslow prints

A new range of Henslow-themed products has been launched at the University's 'Curating Cambridge' online shop.

Combining science and art, items from this new Henslow range make the perfect gift for those with an eye for the unusual.

During his tenure as Professor of Botany at the University of Cambridge, Henslow (1796 - 1861) revitalised the subject and inspired many students of the natural sciences, including a young Charles Darwin. This range of cushions, prints, tote bags, and stationery are based on the Whipple's extensive collection of Henslow's botanical charts.
