Google Logo For 216th Birthday Of Anna Atkins, The Botanist

Anna Atkins is getting some special recognition on the Google home page today, 216 years after her date of birth. The blue Google Doodle showcases leaves imprinted on a blue back drop.

That was Anna's style of photography, known as cyanotype photograms, which is a photographic printing process that produces a cyan-blue print.

Google is remembering her life works as a English botanist and photographer, who is known as the first to publish a book with photographic images.

She was born on March 16, 1799 and died on June 9, 1871.
