Darwin would approve. João and Raquel, an artist couple in Porto, Portugal, with a collecting bent and a letterpress studio, have begun reproducing their own versions of antique educational wall charts of flora and fauna—much like the one in today's House Call . Their work looks convincingly like the real thing, only it's much more affordable. Above: João and Raquel make watercolor reproductions of original botanical illustrations that they print on canvas and finish with wooden slats (which come included). They sell their work via their Etsy shop Arminho. Their  Seaweeds Canvas Poster , 16.5 by 23.6 inches, is $58.44. Above: The Whales Canvas Poster  is available in several sizes, from 16.5 by 12.2 inches (shown above, $37.49) to 24 by 32 inches ($99.24). Above: João and Raquel's  Large Cactus Canvas Poster  depicts Opuntia jamaicensis endemic to Jamaica. It measures 23.5 by 35.4 inches; $99.24. Above: A replica of a Geology Educational Chart , 15.3 by 21.6 inches; $55.13. Above: For the herbal tea lover? Arminho's botanical illustration of Camomile , printed on canvas that measures 19.6 by 27.5 inches, is $43 (wooden slat hangers not included).
