Ephemera
If you love ephemera and vintage florals you are probably familiar with "The Choix des Plus Belles Fleurs" illustrated by Pierre Joseph Redouté (1759-1845) I thought you might like to see some original pages from the book - these are some of my favourite florals especially the first one here "fritillaria". It's hard to believe these were painted so long ago isn't it?
