"...a celebrated botanist and a pioneering photographer."-- "History Today"
"...reveals the ingenuity of Atkins."-- "New Scientist"
"These beautifully detailed images show the remarkable legacy of Anna Atkins, a 19th-century botanist who left her stamp on science and photography with her signature "cyanotype" prints."-- "New Scientist"
"...a luminous new edition."-- "Harper's Bazaar"
