The Niedersächsischen Landesforsten, for whose »Waldstück« magazine I’ve drawn several identification sheets, decided to publish four posters with tree leaves, animal tracks, bird flights and tree silhouettes for usage in their forest centres! Christian Talla, who edits the posters so lovingly, brought them to Din A2 format.
The poster from September 2017 shows the leaf shapes of 25 common European trees, such as alder, apple, ash, beech, birch, boxwood, cherry, chestnut, elm, field maple, hazel, holly, hornbeam, lime, locust, norway maple, oak, pear, plane, poplar, rowan, sloe, sycamore, willow or whitethorn. The poster from December 2017 shows the tracks of 36 common animals, such as badger, bear, beaver, cat, cow, crow, dog, duck, eagle, ferret, fox, frog, gerbil, goat, hedgehog, heron, horse, lynx, marten, moose, mouse, otter, owl, partridge, pig, pigeon, rabbit, raccoon, rat, sparrow, red deer, roe deer, sheep, squirrel, weasel and wolf.
The poster from March 2018 shows 24 common bird species, such as albatros, buzzard, chickadee, crane, duck, eagle, finch, goose, hawk, heron, kestrel, kite, magpie, peregrine, pigeon, raven, seagull, sparrow, sparrowhawk, starling, stork, swallow, swift or thrush, by their silhouette in the air. The poster from June 2018 shows the shapes of 16 common European trees, such as maple, apple, birch, beech, oak, alder, spruce, pine, larch, linden, poplar, chestnut, fir, juniper and willow.
Unfortunately, these posters do not exist for your own four walls, but my simplified retro versions of this and several other posters are now available at the Posterlounge!
