The Royal Society has launched a new ‘print-on-demand’ service which will enable the public to purchase high quality fine art prints from its library and archives. Visitors to the Royal Society’s online print shop will be able to choose from over 2500 strikingly beautiful images including botanical studies, portraits of famous scientists, microscopical observations and zoological illustrations.

The new service opens up the Royal Society’s historic collections for all to enjoy. The print shop will offer a variety of bespoke products, from framed prints on fine art paper, to canvas prints and acrylic prisms. A selection of handmade wooden frames in varying colours and sizes will be available.

The Royal Society Print Shop service is provided by Prodigi (formerly Magnolia Box), who already work with some of the world's finest institutions including the Natural History Museum, Wildlife Photographer of the Year, the British Library and Kew Gardens, to bring their collections to the public.
