The Missouri Botanical Library provides historic botanical literature to the public. Some of the archived material contains beautiful illustrations. I’ve downloaded these illustrations, color corrected them with photo editting software, and picked out images that I think complement each other. I provided a post earlier in the week with groupings of 8″ x 10″ and 11″ x 14″ images. Click the link below to see this post.
The printables available in this post are formatted to be printed for an 18″ x 24″ frame or a 16″ x 20″ frame. Both sizes are formatted in powerpoint to be printed as an 18″ x 24″ poster, this means when you send these files to your local printer request that they be printed as an 18″ x 24″ poster. Your local copy center like OfficeMax, Kinko’s, Staples, etc. can usually print this size for between $10-$15. The 16″ x 20″ option will just have white space around the outside, where the 18″ x 24″ option will take up the whole poster.
To use these files, click on the Powerpoint files which are available below. Save them to your personal computer, and you can upload these files to be printed at copy centers. One important note, the images have been blown up to fit these large size frames. If you want to see the quality of the picture, in powerpoint click on the View tab, click on Zoom and select 100%. This will give you an idea of how it will look when it is printed.
