Are you a fan of vintage biology illustrations and marine fish? If so, you will love this product. It is a digital image of a beautiful and realistic illustration of Atlantic herring, Clupea harengus, a fish that belongs to the herring family, Clupeidae. Atlantic herring is one of the most abundant fish species in the world, and can be found on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, forming large schools near the surface. It can grow up to 45 centimetres (18 inches) in length and weigh up to 1.1 kilograms (2.4 pounds). It feeds on plankton and small fish, and is preyed upon by seals, whales, cod and other larger fish. Atlantic herring is also an important food source for humans, and has been harvested for centuries by commercial fishing fleets. 12

The illustration was made with lithography, a printing method that uses a flat stone or metal plate with a smooth surface. The artist draws the image on the plate with a greasy substance, and then applies ink to the plate. The ink sticks only to the greasy areas, and the rest of the plate is moistened with water. The plate is then pressed against a sheet of paper, transferring the image. Lithography produces fine and detailed prints, and was widely used for scientific and artistic illustrations in the 19th and early 20th centuries3

PNG is a raster format that preserves the quality and details of the image, while vector is a scalable format that can be resized without losing resolution.
