I'm very excited that we will be holding our first annual World Cyanotype Day at Oak Gallery and look forward to a wonderful turnout of friends old and new! This free event is sponsored by Oak Gallery and its featured photographers. Many of whom are wonderful creators of this unique sun print process that dates back to 1842 and is invented by Sir John Herschel. The first photographically illustrated book using the process was created by Anna Atkins
