Description

This selection of vintage French botanical prints from Deyrolle showcases botany as science and art in an ode to the plant kingdom.

From exotic fruit to strawberry blossoms, palm trees to conifers, and grains to aromatic herbs, this selection of exquisite drawings and engravings showcases the charm of French botanical art. Iconic vintage prints of leaf morphology, root vegetable varietals, and a map of France’s fruit trees are reproduced from the archives of Deyrolle-a legendary Parisian establishment dedicated to nature, art, and education. Each print celebrates the majesty of the natural world and will add a touch of French sophistication to your home.

A scientific description of each botanical specimen is accompanied by a “frameable fact” that explains the importance and specificities of that particular plant. The twenty-one high-quality reproductions can be easily detached from the book, placed into standard-size frames, and displayed in the home. Step-by-step tips for grouping the works together harmoniously add an interior designer’s flair to the ensemble. Curate your own home gallery of affordable and finely reproduced art with the Frameables series of decorative prints; the frame-worthy subjects include the Animal Kingdom, Cloudscapes, Tthe Great Outdoors, and City Lights.
