Almost as good as a REAL hummingbird!
from East Hampton, NY and Rahway, NJ
I was so favorably impressed with the book, its lovely box and the quality of the prints. We have a gorgeous garden and have lots of visits from hummingbirds during the summer here at the end of Long Island.This book will be given as a very special, unique gift to a very good friend who absolutely is "nuts" about beautifully presented books and prints of hummingbirds. T
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Absolutely beautiful! Sheer joy to learn more about these joyful birds and to have individual prints suitable for framing and gifting. Can't wait to create a framed indoor collection on our wall that rivals the activity outside our windows and doors here in Colorado! Thank you for the exquisite detail and craftsmanship that went into this portfolio! I count on Levenger Press for these one-of-a-kind book beauties!
from Fort Lauderdale
As a bird enthusiast, hummingbirds are one of my favorite to see in the wild. These prints really capture their beauty.
Humming-Birds 1887: A Portfolio of Framable Prints
from Alexandria, Virginia
Humming Birds 1887 is a portfolio of beautiful prints. I enjoyed looking at them and think it is well done. A lovely reproduction of the 1887 original paintings by John Gould, which otherwise I would not have had the opportunity of acquiring them. The glossy paper, although I did not expect it, makes them last longer and will keep them forever for us to enjoy.
Disappointing set of prints
from Medford, NJ
While the packaging was very nice, the prints have a lot to be desired. First they are printed on glossy magazine type paper stock – and no we are not talking thicker cover material. Second, while the prints are nice, the colours, definition, and saturation are not really there. Given the price, I had expected the same quality as the Redouté: The Grand Collection.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: Thank you for reviewing our Humming-Birds 1887: A Portfolio of Framable Prints. We apologize that this product did not meet your expectations. Although the finish of the paper does have a gloss it is high-quality archival paper. The Humming-Bird prints were not made to look like our Redouté: The Grand Collection prints. The finish is different from the Redouté paper because the prints themselves are very different including more color, lots of background and historical images. We want every customer to be completely satisfied with their purchase and we offer a 100% guarantee. We would like to make this right by assisting with the return of this product for a refund. Please contact our customer service center at 1-800-544-0880 for further assistance.
