Today we have a new P/P post, featuring two complimentary prints of bugs, made over a hundred years apart. The older print is a fantastic representation of 19th century natural history engravings, known for their detailed approach to specimen illustration. The more recent serigraph, by Joan Drew, plays off this tradition, but adds a touch of whimsy.
