In 1853 Anna Atkins published Photographs of British Algae: Cyanotype Impressions (1843-1853), a work considered bymany to be the first photobook. Coinciding with the Library’s exhibition, Blue Prints: The Pioneering Photography of Anna Atkins, non-profit 10×10 Photobooks is launching a collection of works created by artists for whom Atkins paved the way. How We See: Photobooks by Women explores the distinctive content, design and intellectual attributes in photobooks produced by women.
