The cyanotype print is a visually arresting printing method whose small fame dates back to the pioneering nineteenth-century botanist Anna Atkins. Photographer Zeva Oelbaum revisits the beauty of the natural world, and pays homage to this botanist and this little used and compelling process in Blue Prints.

This lushly illutrated book features captivating flower and animal images produced with a process that dates back to the birth of photography, but in a new light: butterflies, leaves, flowering plants, birds' nests, shells, and more are all seen in vibrant and striking contrast.
