I feature the BiblioOdessy blog here semi-regularly, since he seems to find lovely old insect artwork everywhere.
This week: Charming hand-coloured 18th century moth illustrations found in EJC Esper’s ‘Die Schmetterlinge in Abbildungen nach der Natur’ [vol. 4] from 1786, sourced from the University of Heidelberg. Definitely click over and look at the full size images–lovely!
And possibly useful for inviting potential dates to your lair?
