Vintage educational charts crop up in salvage shops from time to time, but if you're a fan you might want to take a look at The Art of Instruction, which collects 150 of these charts into a book.
The collection features colour reproductions of zoological and botanical illustrations from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries that reveal strange and beautiful details of everything from tulips to starfish. Whether your interest lies in art, design, science or natural history this is a fascinating record of a lost art.
The book is available from Amazon for £16.09 - check it out here.
