This design "British Seaweed Tapestry" is a print on linen/cotton blend fabric.
It was in 1957 that the volume called "The Nature Printed British Sea Weeds" was written by W. G Johnstone and A. Croall. Here in this gorgeous design "British Seaweed Tapestry", we see a sea weed from that work. It is accompanied by the title of work as a handsome motif. While it may seem amusing that the subject of sea weeds should be a publication in 4 volumes, it was a sign of the British excellence in botanical studies, and these studies extended to that of the seas. The subject of sea weeds is covered in the work which had a subtitle "A history, accompanied by figures and dissections, of the algae of the British Isles." The originals were nature printed, which means that the plants themselves, in this case, the algae and see weeds were used to create an art print, through the process of imprinting them onto a lead plate, a technique developed by Alois Auer 100 years before. "British Seaweed Tapestry" is available in the options below:
