Impressions of Nature – A History of Nature Printing

In this book, author and printing history expert Roderick Cave explores the history of nature printing – the name given to the technique using the surface of a natural object – like a leaf – to produce the print.

The practice was developed in the Middle Ages to help those gathering medicinal plants and evolved into a serious scientific process used to reproduce plants and build up collections of flora and fauna. During the 19th century, the technique drew on new photographic technology, and today, the long-standing art form continues to interest everyone from botanists to graphic designers and tattoo artists
