A gorgeous picture book biography of botanist and photographer Anna Atkins--the first person to ever publish a book of photography After losing her mother very early in life, Anna Atkins (1799-1871) was raised by her loving father. He gave her a scientific education, which was highly unusual for women and girls in the early 19th century. Fascinated with the plant life around her, Anna became a botanist. She recorded all her findings in detailed illustrations and engravings, until the invention of cyanotype photography in 1842. Anna used this new technology in order to catalogue plant specimens--a true marriage of science and art. In 1843, Anna published the book Photographs of British Algae: Cyanotype Impressions with handwritten text and cyanotype photographs. It is considered the first book of photographs ever published. Weaving together histories of women, science, and art, The Bluest of Blues will inspire young readers to embark on their own journeys of discovery and creativity.… (mais)

I thought this book was a difficult read. The arrangement of the text, font choice along with the illustrations were really hard to follow and it did not help that the entire book was in several repeated variations of blue. The information regarding Anna Atkins relationship with her father and how his guidance developed her interest in science was fair at best but the connections that lead her to becoming a botanist weren't clear enough. The illustrations and color choices were actually nauseating and in my opinion, a really bad choice bordering on inconsideration. ( )

This biography is about a botanist and photographer named Anna Atkins who lived in late 1700's to mid 1800's. It tells the story about how she became interested in plant life and shells as a child who was encouraged by her father. The illustrations in this book are mostly blue and deal with her photographing with the cyanotype photography. It is a good history book in that it talks about a woman who made a living with the combination of art and science to make beautiful specimen photographs and catalogues. ( )
