A Selection of Cyanotypes by Anna Atkins

Anna Atkins was an English botanist and photographer best known for her work with the early photographic process, the cyanotype. In October 1834, Atkins made history when she self-published her cyanotype photographs of algae in the book, “Photographs of British Algae”. This marked the first photographic work accomplished by a woman, as well as the first book produced in its entirety through photographic means. http://bit.ly/1IersNu
