This medium desk caddy features one of Anna Atkins’ seaweed cyanotypes laser-engraved on the front.
Anna Atkins was the first person to use photography to illustrate a book. Note – NOT the first woman, but the first human! She was an incredible illustrator and had illustrated some books for her father, but the discovery of Cyanotypes sent her into a new obsession. She began making photographic images of her extensive seaweed collection in 1843. She created thousands of cyanotype prints and sent them to libraries and other institutions in the mid-1800s for their collections – many of which remain today, including, of course, the collection at the New York Public Library!
Our desk caddies are great for those with more than a few stray pens. They range in size from small (4 holes) to epic (24 holes), suiting the needs of a variety of work spaces.
Each caddy will vary in grain and indications of the wood’s prior use.
- CBChris B.Verified BuyerRated 5 out of 5 stars1 year agoWhat to get your teenage grandkids - that they will really like!
Gramma scored with these beautifully handcrafted desk caddies. They are truly unique and loaded with a story of their own. They made standout Christmas gifts.
Both my grandkids loved them and, while they still spend most of their time on those cursed screens, I know they will enjoy loading up their pencils and pens - and maybe, just maybe, handwriting a thank you note with little added scribbles and art embellishments. They both know their ‘artsy’’ gramma will appreciate seeing that effort and treasure it.
Thanks Peg & Awl…. You did it again!
