Hailed as the earliest precursor to photography, nature printing is the practice of using impressions from the surface of a natural object such as leaves, flowering plants, ferns, seaweed, snakes and more to produce an image. The Zucker Collection is the most extensive collection of nature prints ever assembled, with more than 13,000 images across 130 rare and seminal works, including journals, published books, unique manuscripts, American Currency, and instructional texts related to nature printing from 1733 to 1902.
For the first time, readers will be able to see these nature prints presented side by side, enabling unique comparisons while creating a visually stunning journey through the developments over a 150 year period in printing methods including photography with examples of cyanotypes. Capturing Nature is the ultimate guide to Nature Printing, and a beautiful reference work for scholars, artists, designers, botanists, and anyone interested in nature, botanical illustration, and printing.
