One thought on “Cyanotypes of British Algae by Anna Atkins (1843)

  1. These cyanotypes are beautiful.

    A modern version of “sun printing” is available as a small kit of photographic paper. I believe Lee Valley carries the kit.

    Though a different process, photographic versus paper collage, this work is reminiscent of that of Mary Delany (1700-1788). See: The Paper Garden: Mrs. Delany Begins Her Life’s Work at 72 by Molly Peacock (Goodreads Author)
