I've just framed 15 of my favourite prints and they look fantastic all lined up on my wall. They fit into Ikea Ribba frames, so it's a very cost-effective way of decorating and getting a big impact. Not sure what I'm going to do the ones I have left though!

This excellent product arrived intact and well protected from any damage during mailing which was due to the efforts of Taschen Publishers. The plates of vegetables originally printed in the late nineteenth century are each printed on heavy paper and individually suitable for framing because of their high quality. The paper is not glossy but the detail of the various images is superb. Each plate achieves a combination of scientific detail and artistic presentation. I really enjoyed getting this item.

HASH(0x8c1fd39c) out of 5 stars Taschen does it again 18 Feb. 2011
By Martha of The Rosenbach - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Boxed collection/Book is just beatiful. The size and quality of the prints is amazing. The case is very nicely executed. I am sorry to see the refence to framing the prints because breaking the colection would be a shame. The value is excellent and Amazon did their usual great job of packing and shipping.

Simply beautiful illustrations, printed on deckle-edge, high-quality paper with boxed presentation. The color and print quality is excellent. If you like botanical art, this collection is for you. Each print is certainly frame-worthy. A lovely booklet accompanies the collection too.

I am framing some of these for my dining room. They are beautiful pieces of art and the paper is thick and pretty as well. Go in with a few friends and you could all have some museum type pieces hanging in your kitchen or dining areas. I love to look at them.
HASH(0x8c1fd8a0) out of 5 stars Fine Art from a GARDEN? 1 Jun. 2013
By litgirl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Though these don't take the idea of vegetables and gardening to an interpretive art level, the colors and attention to detail make these prints perfect. You'll find yourself enchanted even with the vegetables you hate.

The medium to dark cream paper is so thick and luxurious. Definitely great for art prints. Definitely some real fabric (rag or linen) content to the paper. Each print has a real WEIGHT to it. I find myself just laying a hand on the surface of the paper, which in itself is not your everyday experience, by far.

If you can't find a place for these in your house, even hanging some by wire and paper or metal clips on a kitchen wall would make you do a double take every morning. They are just that beautiful. The only drawback is the sheer size of the box and the prints themselves which are huge. If you have a studio apartment, this may make a good coffee table, if you don't mind ruining it all. If you have a good place for storage, you'll be happy. These are not going to fit in the average tallest portion of a book shelf.

This edition contains great illustrations and the presentation is wonderful. I loved it and despite being tempted to frame some of the prints, I won't take this visual experience apart.
