About the print shop

The library and archives of the Royal Society, the UK’s national academy of science, contain rich collections of printed books, manuscripts and paintings which have been developed since the Society’s founding in 1660.

Images from these sources have been hand-selected for inclusion in this print shop to offer a range of inspiring visual material including rare published plates, watercolour studies and pencil sketches from across the history of science.

We also sell gift cards which are valid against any image/product on the Prints store, never expire, and are sent via email 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

We accept payment by credit card, PayPal and Amazon Pay.

All print purchases support The Royal Society.
