Celebrating the beauty of vintage European educational charts, this collection of 100 postcards is divided into four categories: anatomy, botany, zoology, and miscellany. From the anatomy of a tulip or an apple tree to that of a hedgehog or starfish, the images in this collection are captivating with their curious visuals and intricate details, notated in the language of their countries of origin. Perfect for decor and correspondence.

The images showcased in this collection are sourced from two European companies: Hagemann and Rossignol, both of which are quite famous in the world of educational charts.

HAGEMANN: a German educational charts company, which has been manufacturing charts since the 1920s.
