Korsmo's weed charts for sale in the museum shop
Visit our museum shop and buy a unique vintage weed chart, produced in the 1930s by Norwegian agronomist and botanist Emil Korsmo.
Korsmo's weed charts are an exceptional series of botanical wall charts produced in the 1930s by Norwegian agronomist and botanist Emil Korsmo. The charts are internationally renowned. They were used as important educational tools in many European countries for decades.
The charts were printed in Leipzig, Germany. During the second world war, the printing plates were destroyed in a bomb raid. Therefore, it is not possible to print more of the original charts.
The company Norsk Hydro funded the printing of the plates in the 1930s. In the 1990s they wished to get rid of the original prints they still had in storage.
Luckily, a small group of employees were permitted to take over custody of the collection. Subsequently they were stored in a barn for several years, before they were made available through the Natural History Museum. Previously, original prints could only be found occasionally in antique shops.
We are proud to announce that the museum shop now has several copies of all of the 90 charts for sale.
