Images selected by

"The difficulty of making accurate drawings of objects as minute as many of the Algae and Conferva, has induced me to avail myself of Sir John Herschel's beautiful process of Cyanotype, to obtain impressions of the plants themselves, which I have much pleasure in offering to my botanical friends."
 
Anna Atkins, Photographs of British algae: cyanotype impressions, (Private publication, 1843-1850)
