Sunflower Botanical Poster – Helianthus annuus
The Evolution Store has obtained a series of German educational charts that were originally illustrated in the 1950s and ‘60s and continue to be produced by the same printer. This printer has been internationally recognized for producing scientifically accurate educational charts since 1929.
These charts have been reissued using the original film and the same methods as the first printing. They are printed without inscription for university study and esthetic purposes with special attention paid to anatomical detail and accuracy.
The Evolution Store offers posters with and without wooden dowels!
