This box of notecards presents twelve of her contact photograms - of algae, ferns and irises - in rich hues and stunning detail. Matching envelopes are printed on the inside with cyanotype images of the handwritten pages of Atkins' books. Visit the Collection at the J. Paul Getty Museum, at Getty.edu
