Welcome to Princeton Audubon Limited.  We invite you to invest in what Audubon author William Steiner calls "...simply the finest Audubon facsimiles ever produced." Princetons are far beyond common reproductions. The actual antique originals were purchased and physically centered in the re-creation process, resulting in absolutely exact documents of the original art. The prestigeous Royal Society of London, where Audubon himself served as a Fellow, chose Princeton prints for permanent display.That's a jolly good recommendation!  Martha Stewart Living asked to frame and display our Snowy Owl. Here is our Purple Heron in the offices of The New York Times

They are true prints, great paper, incredible detail and true colors...simply the finest Audubon facsimiles ever produced!" - Bill Steiner, Audubon print collector and author of Audubon Prints: A Collector's Guide To Every Edition.

"Of all the Audubon reproductions, Princetons come the closest in appearance and quality to the originals." Chris Lane, owner of Philadelphia Print Shop West and guest appraiser on PBS Antiques Roadshow.  More reviews.

Between 1827 and 1838 John James Audubon produced his original life-size (double elephant) Birds of America. Princeton Audubon Limited purchased these originals in order to accurately reproduce them same-size, these being the world's only direct-camera capture fine art lithographs. 

Princetons in Gallery 1 were produced by the late David Johnson, a Master Printer and collector of Audubon originals who owned the paramount printing company in the country - Princeton Polychrome Press. This company, now sold, achieved an enviable nationwide reputation by reproducing fine art prints for the National Gallery of Art, National Portrait Gallery, Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, The Detroit Institute of Arts and many more.

HISTORICAL NOTE: Since Audubon portrayed each bird in the foreground of his compositions the size of life, he needed to depict the larger birds in feeding positions in order for them to fit in the largest copperplates available in his day. As you will see, these images take up most of the area on the paper. Note the end feathers of this Crane. They actually protrude outside the area of the copperplate.
