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!

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

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.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
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.

Great pictures 11 Sept. 2012
By kdee - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
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.
