Vintage Natural History Bird Grackle Print

Vintage Print of the Boat-tailed Grackle: This print is a reproduction of an illustration by John James Audubon (April 26, 1785 – January 27, 1851). He was an American ornithologist, naturalist, and painter. He was notable for his extensive studies documenting all types of American birds and for his detailed illustrations that depicted the birds in their natural habitats. His major work, a color-plate book entitled The Birds of America (1827–1839), is considered one of the finest ornithological works ever completed. Audubon identified 25 new species. The pages have been scanned in, cropped, and retouched to ensure the highest quality reproduction possible. The art is digitally printed on high quality acid free and archival matte paper and includes an info card with the history of the art.

Curious Prints was born in 2010 and is the creation of Louisiana born designer, Kate Faulk. What started as an outlet to share the vintage images she loved so much has grown into a lifestyle brand offering home decor and accessories.

"I have always been fascinated by birds, insects, the creepy crawly things I came across as a kid. I grew up on a farm in South Louisiana and it's still my happy place. As my personal collection of vintage science prints has grown, I have discovered how much I love connecting with others through a shared love of vintage art. As a graphic designer by trade, I have developed a passion for retouching and restoring vintage images and experimenting with the printing process. This curated collection is ever evolving and I continue to try out new processes and materials." - K.F.
