For unique gift ideas, why not try the Royal Society Print Shop. You can purchase high quality framed prints of images from the Royal Society’s collections, and share a piece of science history this Christmas.

Fans of this year’s Seeing closer exhibition might like to try a print from Hooke’s Micrographia:


Illustration showing a microscopic view of a flea. Schem. XXXIV from Micrographia by Robert Hooke, 1665.


Stunning bird illustrations by Mark Catesby make decorative gifts:


The ‘red wing’d starling’ and the ‘broad-leaved candle-berry myrtle’. Plate 13 from volume I of ‘The natural history of Carolina, Florida and the Bahama Islands’ by Mark Catesby (London, 1731).


Or why not choose from our extensive collection of portraits:


Charles Darwin. A 1912 copy by Mabel Messer of an original by John Collier, 1881, showing the naturalist in the last year of his life.
