Description
Simply gorgeous. Presented as 51 unbound fine art prints in an enormous red linen clamshell case, this portfolio contains what is generally thought to be the most dramatic illustrations of John Gould (1804–1881), the only ornithological artist of the 19th century to rival John James Audubon in ambition and quality. The range of vivid color in The Family of Toucans—shiny black, vibrant red, yellow, and orange—creates an unprecedented sense of animation; the birds seem to emerge from the page more like living creatures than two-dimensional representations. Taken from the revised and expanded edition published in London in 1854, the facsimile plates are individual prints ready for framing, measuring just larger than 13 x 19 inches, and are accompanied by a bound introduction to the artist and his book, in English, French, and German.
