Before classrooms boasted overhead projectors, whiteboards, and the like, oversize wall charts conveyed a vast range of information to young learners. This wonderful book reprints 100 vintage educational posters from the 1870s to the 1960s, many handdrawn in vivid colors, that cover anatomy, botany, and zoology. From the internal workings of a jellyfish to the makeup of the marsh marigold, every illustration in this book transcends science to reveal itself as a work of art.
