Ocean Flowers.
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. Read Publisher's Description.
