Reproducing pieces of the rediscovered manuscript of American artist and naturalist Titian Ramsay Peale (17991885), these unique butterfly notecards are housed in a gorgeous keepsake box. Titian Peale devoted his life to The Butterflies of North America, an ambitious and comprehensive illustrated manuscript equivalent in scope to Audubons Birds of North America. Now in the rare book room of the American Museum of Natural History, this extraordinary work is being reproduced for the first time as book, calendar, and a gorgeous collection of stationery products (there is also a companion Titian Peale Butterfly Journal).
