Ox-eye daisies dancing in the sun

There are so many wonderful aspects to my book making process, and one of the best bits is that I get to work with flowers. The cyanotype process is an alternative photography technique that produces a negative image of whatever is placed on the paper. In my case, I use flowers, and that makes me very happy.

I love my garden, which may be small, but which is filled with as many flowers as I can possibly cram in and I use quite a lot of them in my cyanotype prints … osteospermums, black-eyed susans, clematis and cosmos. These are my favourite cultivated flowers. But mainly I use wildflowers.
