Fine Art Gallery 5 Princeton Essex NYHS Edition (reduced size)
Princeton Essex NYHS Edition
Reduced-size Audubon Havell re-creations, 19 x 23 and 17 1/2 x 26 inches.
Louise Mirrer, Director of the New-York Historical Society says, "Princeton has faithfully reproduced the N-YHS original engravings in a collector's edition of stunning quality and brilliant color."
This edition is faithfully created directly fromactual originalsin the collection of the New-York Historical Society. For example, the images of the Louisiana Heron and the Roseate Spoonbill were both professionally captured from the originals themselves, and then continuously matched during the production process against the actual originals in the collection of the New-York Historical Society to ensure absolute accuracy. This unusual access to the nearly 180-year-old originals assures you of a most accurate reproduction.
Further, the specially made fade-proof inks are pressed upon the absolute finest of all paper, 110# Essex. Essex is a specially made 100% rag, coated paper designed for critical art reproduction. It makes the ink "stand up" in order to faithfully capture the layered look and feel of Audubon's original production. Essex is produced here in America, in New Hampshire, at Monadnock Paper Mills, the oldest continuously operating paper mill in the country. So fine is the Essex paper that we have taken the unusual step of highlighting this fact in the name of our new edition.
