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.
