From Hortus Eystettensis by Basilius Besler, the most beautiful botanic art collection from the 17th century, a wonderful print reproduced using modern techniques. Shapes and colours for your home. Allow Nature in!
This print is a reproduction in natural size, imperial folio, printed on aged paper, similar to the original in weight (170 g), texture, colour and 32 mm laid lines. The imprint of the etching plate can be clearly seen. The colouring matches the original, thanks to the use of a chromolithography process, photographic retouching and four-colour printing.
The history of botany and the disclosure of its most rare and precious aspects, has always been part of the Aboca project. Hortus Eystettensis was published in 1613, following 16-year long study. It contains illustrations of more than 1000 plants, ordered for the first time according to the natural calendar of flowering time. The specimen that Aboca acquired, and also carried out the entire reproduction of, was the one from Eichstätt University Library.
