Impressions from Nature.
Edited by Carol Armstrong and Catherine De Zegher.
Princeton University Press, Princeton, 2004. 272 pp., 200 color illustrations, 8½x10¼".
This magnificent book is based on the simple joys of
curiosity and the natural world. Carol Armstrong,
Professor of Art and Archaeology
at Princeton, and Catherine de
Zegher, Director of The Drawing
Center in New York, have put their
brilliant minds together to bring us
a collection of book plates, cyanotypes,
and color illustrations, all
from the mid-nineteenth century,
that revolve around the intensive experimentation
accompanying the advent of photography. Anna Atkins
(1799-1871) and her Victorian contemporaries are featured
prominently, and the sheer number of plant specimens
and illustrations is amazing.
