Audubon author Bill Steiner calls Princetons, "True prints, great color, incredible detail. Simply the finest Audubon facsimiles ever produced." "Of all the Audubon reproductions, Princetons come the closest in appearance and quality to the originals." - Chris Lane, co-owner of Philadelphia Print Shop (Philadelphia and Denver) and guest appraiser on PBS Antiques Roadshow. "The Princeton Collection reproductions of Audubon's birds offer an incredible value. The quality of color, definition and paper are fantastic and far beyond expectations." - Rare-Prints Gallery owner Ben Frishman

Unlike the production of any other Audubon edition in the world, Princeton purchased the actual originals and physically utilized them in creating these absolutely accurate Double Elephant or same size documents. Princetons 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. Using the direct-camera technique that he pioneered, along with oversized Kodak film with its infinite retention of detail, he produced what Audubon author Bill Steiner calls, "... simply the finest Audubon facsimiles ever produced."
