Nature to hang on the wall

A few years ago I came across Deyrolle on the Rue de Bac in Paris, a wonderful cabinet of curiosities - butterflies, taxidermy, skeletons, insects, and sea shells all beautifully arranged and catalogued. My souvenirs from the visit were two teaching posters designed in the late 19th century - 'Orchidees' and 'Papillons', now framed and happily hanging on the walls of my lounge room. These posters and many more tempting items are now available in the Deyrolle on-line boutique. I think I can make room for one more.....
