A classic conservation box - known in French as a
« boîte à chasses » ( a term with a double meaning of « a box with excess board » and « a hunting box » ) - is covered in camouflage cloth and holds a group of eight real-sized reproductions (A3) of mounted herbarium specimens of common reeds collected around the world. Each mount is printed on Japanese paper that has been folded to fit into the B4-sized edition by using the broken lines of the plant.
