Hailed as the first female photographer (and first to publish a book of photographs), Victorian botanist Anna Atkins made stunning cyanotypes—blueprints—of hundreds of different plants. Sunprint presents twelve of her contact photograms— of algae, ferns, and irises—in rich hues and stunning detail. Matching envelopes are printed on the inside with cyanotype images of the handwritten pages of Atkins's books.
