Albertus Seba (1665-1736), a Dutch apothecary, had one of the most extensive collections of natural curiosities in the world. He commissioned artists to draw all his specimens, then had them engraved and published as a set of folios. This poster was created from those folios. It’s a great tribute to the beginning of today’s natural history museums. All of this and more is presented in an informative inset at the bottom of the poster.
