Anna Atkins Font 2021

Font created by David Harris from photographic scans of Anna Atkins handwriting

Anna Atkins was a British botanist and photographer. Her 1843 book Photographs of British Algae: Cyanotype Impressions is considered the first book illustrated with photographic images. Although sources differ and the issue is unlikely to be fully resolved, Atkins is claimed to be first female photographer. (Other sources attribute this to Constance Fox Talbot.)
