Book Description

1 Oct 2011 9781452101118 978-1452101118
Now reproduced in one deluxe volume for the first time, this unique collection of 150 vintage educational charts celebrates the art of education. Once used in classroom instruction, these charts are now important relics in the history of education, science, and art. Dating from the late 19th to early 20th centuries the charts are divided into three main categories of zoology, anatomy, and botany. Complete with a brief introduction surveying the history of educational charts and their production, this collection is both a rich visual wonder and a glimpse into a design heritage that is still of significance today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for "Cabinet of Curiosities" enthusiasts - diverse and beautiful collection of vintage scientific illustrations 26 April 2012

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is wonderful! It contains a truly beautiful and varied collection of vintage illustrations. It is a perfect coffee table book, gift, source for artistic inspiration, or wall art project (if you are willing to take some pages out). The binding and paper are high quality as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXQUISITE ART COLLECTION 19 April 2012
By Judy Rowland - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this for my daughter, who is a high school art teacher, on her request. It was accidentally sent to me instead of her, so I got a chance to look at it before giving it. Wow! I can see why she wanted this book to share with her "fibers" students. How beautiful! I'm sure that the students were inspired by the luxurious drawings - three of her ten students who qualified for the state art competition received gold certificates!

I had seen this book advertised in a magazine & loved the prints. I bought the book with the intent to frame & hang some of the prints but the book is so lovely, I changed my mind. Very happy with the product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great pictures 11 Sep 2012

If you love old chart art, this book is fantastic. Nice selection of floral subjects as well as others.
The black background makes the art work stand out. The flowers are beautifully rendered. Would be great to take a few pages and use as wall art if you didn't mind dismantling the book.
