Weed’s job is look after the apothecary’s poisonous plants, as he cares for them he begins to hear them speak. Each plant tells him a gruesome story about how they can be used to poison people. For the book I produced a botanical drawing for each of the plants and then a version of the plant in character, through the eyes of Weed.
