And certain populations, like New York's, remind us where the phrase̴Ì_"off the charts" came from.̴Ì_This is a̴Ì_one-of-a-kind, dynamic,̴Ì_chaotic collection of information.

All prints are on matte, archival, acid-free paper, and all framed prints are framed in satin black wooden frames.

We've done a little bit of cleanup to prepare the image for printing, but this is a faithful reproduction of the source material, and bears any scratches, smudges, or tears that were in the original. How charming!

Note: The botanical watercolors originals are on the smaller side, so we recommend 16 x 20" and below. While larger prints are fine from several feet away, you may notice pixellation when viewing them up-close.
