Artist's description:

Donald Short's Blue Prints are made using a CYANOTYPE process invented by the British astronomer Sir John Herschel in 1842 and first used in the botanical photograms of his friend, Anna Atkins. Each image is created on hand made photo-sensitized paper and limited to signed editions.

Recommended aperture is 16*21 cm with a mount measuring 30.5*26 cm. Alternatively float in frame of choice with rough edges/register markings.

*Due to the handmade nature of the process expect variation in surface texture and intensity - in effect, each Blue Print is unique.

Materials used:

cyanotypes on Arches Platine

Britannia '51 (2011)
