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.

I really love Vilmorin's vegetable prints. This is a wonderful set with high quality reproductions which arrives in a fabulous wooden box. I will be framing several of them.
