A series of 23 full page vintage reproduction prints,
compromising of 110 sea creatures, from the original publication
of Louis Renard’s ‘Poissons, Ecrevisses et Crabes’ (Fish, Crayfish
and Crabs) published in 1719, depicting the art thought to be
that of Samuel Fallours. The original illustrations lay claim to
being the first colour publication in colour on fish and celebrate
the exquisiteness of the fish from the East Indies. The sea
creatures are exotic and whimsical in style and are just a delight
This book has been created to provide a new audience with the
appreciation of the aesthetic splendour of these prints and have
been left in their natural colour form to ensure authenticity.
Apart from some formatting and cropping due to layout
requirements, they are a true representation of the original
Ideal for just appreciating the magnificence of these drawings or
to use for crafters to cut and paste into collages, decoupage, art
sketchbooks, junk journals, nature journals or even to cut out
and place in photo collages or photo frames to create an art wall.
The backs of each image, with a decorative edge and semi
transparent frame inner are designed to allow for notes or
sketches, should you wish to develop this book further or use it
as a personal sketchbook, but also perfect should you wish to use
this as a craft project as the prints will not be obscured.
