These glorious notecards use Victorian botanist Anna Atkins's cyanotypes of plants. A friend of Fox Talbot and John Herschel, Atkins realised that the "photogenic drawing" and cyanotype methods could be used to precisely record botanical samples, and her groundbreaking Photographs of British Algae was published in 1843. The matching envelopes use images of Atkins's handwritten notes.
