This hardcover journal is based on Titian Ramsay Peale’s The Butterflies of North America, an unpublished nineteenth-century manuscript equivalent in scope to Audubon’s Birds of America. Inspired by the collage-like quality of Peale’s original notes and drawings, the journal features an exposed binding, a foil-stamped cover, a removable half-jacket, and artwork scattered throughout the blank and lined pages. Peale’s manuscript is now housed in Rare Book Collection of the American Museum of Natural History’s Library.
