Alex Boon Art - Home of Lapine Botanica - For Nature Lovers

Hello, I am shop owner, artist and designer Alex Boon. Welcome to my shop.

I decided to create an Etsy shop to showcase my “Lapine Botanica” series of collectible rabbit art with buyers and collectors all around the world. I hope that you will enjoy displaying, sending, sharing, or sticking these bunnies as much as I enjoyed creating them. I will occasionally also include some other seasonal gifts and original drawings too.

I created "Lapine Botanica" because I have always been a huge fan of the book “Watership Down” by Richard Adams. I read it for the first time after watching the movie when I was about 10 years old, and have read it many, many times since. Adams' rich descriptions of the flora and fauna of the English countryside took hold of my heart. However, when I searched the book online, to see if others loved this aspect of it too, something began to trouble me with a few of the comments, primarily from young people. “Too many flower names!" “I don’t even know what that plant looks like!”

So Lapine Botanica came from a desire to change all that, and connect people back into recognising flowers and trees common in the UK via the medium of beautiful bunnies! Each rabbit contains the tree or plant of its namesake, produced in ink and coloured pencil. There will be a series of 24 rabbits (the first set of 6 are available now), each showcasing a different plant or tree, created with the mission of bringing a sense of familiarity with British flora to Watership Down fans and nature lovers all around the world.
