The Cyanotype: This forgotten photographic printing process from the 19th century was invented by Sir John Herschel (1792–1871) in 1842. Also known as shadowgraphs or blue-prints, this fascinating photographic printing process can be used to create fine art prints, cards or bespoke books.

Without any photographic knowledge or specialist equipment, it is possible to create beautiful images with the cyanotype process. Images can be printed on a range of surfaces such as fine art papers, silk and cloth. Cyanotypes can be used to create fine art prints, books, hand made cards and wall hangings. Cyanotype prints are archival and will last for many decades.
