Starting from 1907, the zoologist Adalbert Seitz published a sensational encyclopedia concerning the butterflies of the world. More than 8000 butterflies were hand drawn with impressive accuracy and scientific precision. In cooperation with the fomer publisher, Alfred Kerner, do we reproduced a little selection of these images for a poster. Our criteria of choice were frequency, regional occurrences, and the magnificence of forms and colors of the distinct species. For every butterfly you'll find it's occurrence, it's scientific (Latin) name and, if existing, it's trivial name in. Some names of sorts- and species were adapted to the newest terminology.
