Cyanotype of Aspidium lonchitis, 1853 | Science Museum Group Collection
Atkins, Anna (1799-1871) Date: 1853 Description: A cyanotype labelled 'Ceylon', from the album 'Cyanotypes of British and Foreign Ferns', made by Anna Atkins in 1853. This image was made by placing the plant specimen on top of light-sensitised paper and then exposing it to sunlight. The brilliant blue colour of the resulting prints gives the process its more common name - the blueprint. The process was used for many years to duplicate engineers' drawings.
Print and Hang! Menus from the New York Public Library
The New York Public Library has a breathtakingly vast digital archive. You can browse botanicals, photographs, historic apartment floorplans, and (our favorite) old menus. It’s addictive! And here’s the best part: You can order prints, framed or unframed, or print them out yourself for free. We can so see a row of these whimsical menus in a kitchen.Most of the menus are from hotels and cruise lines and date back to the early-to-mid 1900s.
