John James Audubon’s Birds of America Prints

NOTE: Audubon prints purchased today will be shipped August 27th. Thank you.
"The woods are the habitation best fitted for them, and there the richness of their plumage, their beautiful mode of flight, and even their screams, afford welcome intimation that our darkest forests and most sequestered swamps are not destitute of charms." So wrote John James Audubon about the stunning Carolina Parrot. In later years he was said to write: "Our Parakeets are rapidly diminishing in number, and in some districts, where twenty-five years ago they were plentiful, scarcely any are now to be seen." Sadly, this beautiful bird, which ranged from Texas to New York, is now extinct.
Welcome to Princeton Audubon Prints. We feature our Princeton Audubon Double Elephant Edition, of which is said ...

“True prints, true colors, incredible detail. Princetons are simply the finest Audubon facsimiles ever made!”

- William Steiner, author of Audubon Prints: A Collector’s Guide To Every Edition.

We purchased the actual antique originals in order to accurately produce this award-winning edition, giving a connection to Audubon’s original work. Read more ...

“Of all the full-size facsimiles of Audubon's prints, those from Princeton Audubon Ltd. come the closest in appearance and quality to the originals. Combining this with their very reasonable cost makes Princeton Audubon facsimiles winners for those looking to acquire some of the most dramatic American natural history images ever produced."

- Chris Lane, Philadelphia Print Shop West, appraiser on Antiques Roadshow.
