Caption: 19th-century plant cyanotype. Cyanotype of the plant Spiraea aruncus, as produced by British botanist Anna Atkins (1799-1871). This plant is a Tyrolean flowering shrub. The cyanotype 'blueprinting' imaging technique was invented by British astronomer John Herschel (1792-1871). This cyanotype is from 'Cyanotypes of British and Foreign Flowering Plants' (1854), published privately by Atkins as a gift to a friend.
