Collect magnets from the Linnean society to adorn your surfaces. There are different designs to choose from and this fern illustration is an image with an interesting history.

Victorian Pteridomania, or fern fever, created an increased demand for nature-prints of this type which led to innovations in printing processes. Developed at the Imperial Printing Office in Vienna under the Directorship of Alois Auer, Moore and Bradbury believed that this new method of nature printing was the way forward in displaying accuracy and detail in plants, particularly ferns.

Image: A nature printed plate of the sophisticated lady fern (Athyrium filix-foemina) from Thomas Moore and Henry Bradbury’s The Ferns of Great Britain and Ireland (1855).

Size: 52 x 78 mm

Format: Laminated colour print formed round millboard with adhesive magnet reverse.

Provenance: Made in the UK by a manufacturer who is focussed on reducing their carbon footprint. Magnets contain 25% recycled material, with no PVC or VOC (volatile organic compound).

Producer: The Linnean Society
