Johann Christoph Volkamer. Citrus Fruits XXL
(999 items available)
Have you ever thought of citrus fruits as celestial bodies, angelically suspended in the sky? Citrons, lemons, and bitter oranges float above Italian villas, Nuremberg gardens, and picturesque countryside in J. C. Volkamer’s 18th century ode to the citrus fruit. Reproducing a rare hand-coloured set of the copper plates, this publication shows 170 varieties of citrus fruits. Full of fragrance and colour, they revive a time when fruits really were exotic.
