This group of cyanotype editions formed an exhibition in summer 2018 in Perth Museum and Gallery
All are 55 x 47 cm unframed, in editions of 15.
This group of cyanotypes were part of an exhibition in spring 2016 Skyward; A Study in Flight, with MUSA (Museum of the University of St Andrews) and students from the Museum and Galleries Studies Masters degree course.
The creatures are all specimens from the beautiful Victorian Bell Pettigrew Museum, in the University of St Andrews.
This group of cyanotypes are made from a collection of glass plate negatives and positives held in Special Collections at the University of St Andrews. The slides were all made in the 1970s by Prof Laverack.
