FN50: Fern of Breat Britain & Ireland

  • “The Ferns of Great Britain & Ireland ”
Capturing the exact details of a plant or insect by printing directly from the natural object has been the goal of printers for hundreds of years. Eighteenth century attempts failed due to the fragility of the dried plants and the processes of the day. In the Nineteenth century printers realized they could first impress the object into another, harder material and print from that. Wood softened by steam and various types of metal were used to make a mould of the plants, coloured inks were then applied and the image was transferred to paper.
