This folio was produced to accompany the exhibition A Northeast Folio: Exhibition of Works by Contemporary Botanical Printmakers from 14 May–14 September 1979. It contains color and black-and-white reproductions, suitable for framing, by 17 contemporary northeastern American printmakers. John V. Brindle, curator of art at the Institute from 1961 to 1981, recounts in the introduction the "long and happy marriage" between plants and printmaking.

Six of the eight color prints by Lowell Nesbitt, Alex Katz, Gaboh Peterdi, Hugh Kepets, Arcadia Olenska-Petryshyn, Jacques Hnizdovsky, Elaine Simel and Tjelda Michas are available for purchase unframed at $2.00 each. (See the Posters page for more information.)
