Review of "Blue Prints: The Natural World In Cyanotype Photos" by Zeva Oelbaum


Blue Prints: The Natural World In Cyanotype Photos   by Zeva Oelbaum

This book is special. Beautifully done cyanotypes. Each image has me trying to figure out how she made it. I have not verified this with the author, but I believe there is some digital manipulation going on. Nonetheless, the images are beautiful and well constructed. A very inspiring book for cyanotype makers. 

The cloth book cover is blue. Everything is blue (except maybe one black image). Zeva Oelbaum has created wonderful images - some from negatives and some from objects. 

If you like cyanotypes, get this book.
