The Animals


A series of nine, black and white animal reprints based on 18th century copper-plate engravings published at the end of the 1700s. Each animal is framed in toffee ink double accent mounts and delicate light-teak mouldings. These prints are available as a set of 9, 6 or smaller multiples. You can choose from the flamingo, camel, tiger, lion, bear, elephant, rhino, giraffe and ostrich.

The word camelopard (on the giraffe print) - is the traditional historical English expression for giraffe. Derived from Greek, it was used to describe the animal as possessing a camel's body but wearing a leopard's coat.

All our reproduction collections are made-to-order, limited in number and originate from antiques specially sourced by Petri Prints.
