HummingBirds 1887 A Portfolio of Framable Prints
Almost as good as a REAL hummingbird!
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

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!

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
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
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.
