A cyanotype is a photographic printing technique, made using sunlight, that results in a cyan-blue print. The process was discovered in 1842, and has been widely used by artists and photographers, but also engineers, as a way to create affordable copies of technical drawings.
Anna Atkins is considered to be the first woman photographer, and published a beautiful book called Photographs of British Algae: Cyanotype Impressions, documenting the shapes of her local seaweed varieties. The New York Public Library preserves much of Anna Atkins’s original work, including an edition of her groundbreaking book. Explore her cyanotypes through our digital collections. With this kit, you can use the exact same technique to create your own blue artwork with plants.
