Published in the mid-19th century, “Ferns: British & Exotic” was researched and written by naturalist E.J. Lowe.
All the artwork, such as the one that was the inspiration for this print, was created by A.F. Lydon. The book was comprised of several block-printed pages of various types of ferns, a process called chromoxylography. Once the blocking was completed, detailing was added by hand. This print is their homage to this obsolete craft. It is framed in polished white wood with hanging hooks in the back.
