What the Experts Say"To a collector, these are some of the most important maps in history. They are extraordinarily rare, and the originals command prices extending well into six figures. The thrill of repeatedly seeing and studying them is now possible at affordable prices. From the re-creation of cartographic detail to the visual texture of the woodcut impressions to the patina of the five-hundred year old paper – these prints are perfect."

"These Perfect Recreations accurately and delicately replicate the finest pencil lines; and, they faithfully capture the luminous and layered quality of every watercolor brushstroke. These unique reproductions capture perfectly and render everything that Bodmer saw and painted."

watercolors of Karl Bodmer
”This is an opportunity to have what the Empress Josephine [Bonaparte] had drawn for her by Pierre Joseph Redouté in her garden at Chateau Malmaison. It is the first time these watercolors have been reproduced since the stipple engravings were made in Paris between 1802 and 1816. For almost 200 years, no one has had the opportunity to see these amazing watercolors. Now they do – because, in my opinion, these Perfect Recreations are indistinguishable from the originals.”
