This unique book replicates an album of vintage cyanotypes--from simulated stains on the back cover to pages printed to look yellowed. The premise is this: to capture essential elements of various time-periods, yet only through the use of contrived situations. Each of the images is toned to re-create the appearance of a cyanotype.
