"Collecting Nature" by Clive Aslet and Svante Helmbaek Tiren
With 18th- and 19th-century artwork sourced from old and rare books, John Derian has elevated decoupage into fine art. This astoundingly beautiful collection consists of almost 300 arresting, odd and lovely images, from intensely colored flowers and birds to curious portraits, hand-drawn letters, and breathtaking landscapes. An oversized volume on printed on the highest quality paper, the book itself is a work of art. And all of the oversized pages are frame-worthy.
Hard cover, 368 pages, a very large format measuring 14 1/4 x 11 1/2 inches.
