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!

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.

Ripped it apart and framed it and can't believe how lovely the pages look behind glass and mats. Cheap frames form Ikea spray-painted gold give these the presence one would not ascribe to pages torn out of a book.

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.

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.

The pictures in this book are absolutely stunning. I purchased this book to take a few pages out and use as art for my dining room wall. I was a bit disappointed that the pictures didn't fill the entire page, but they are still large enough, about 8.5" by 11".
I was also pleasantly surprised that there is a zoology section to the book. I didn't read the description very well, so I'm not sure if it states they are there or not.
This book is highly recommended by me!

I got this book when my daughter was around 18 months. It has detailed, realistic images of plants and animals, including their insides. Very interesting, for people of all ages. Note, there is little or no text or labels, so you have to look elsewhere (wikipedia, biology/botany textbook) if you want to know more about what is pictured. See my other reviews for other natural history books for small children.

Book was delivered in a fast timely manner and was new. There are several areas where you need to be able to understand the scientific terms to understand, because there are no definitions. But a beautiful book with great scientific artifacts for students.

As a visual artist the detail, composition and color schemes were inspiring. Always wonderful to find something outside of traditional fine art.
