In the last 500 years, scientific progress has been immense. Many superb illustrations were made to record discoveries and machines. For example, after the invention of the telescope, elaborate celestial maps were drawn showing the position of stars and planets. The industrial revolution lead to a profusion of ingenious machines being created - illustrations of these are fascinating and sometimes quite amusing ! Our fine art prints about sceince and technology are based on antique illustrations made in the period 1600 to 1920. We make them with superb pigmented inks and heavyweight 300gsm German fine art paper made from 100% cotton and spring water.
