Cyanotype is a photographic printing process that gives a cyan-blue print. Two chemicals are used in the process. The English scientist and astronomer Sir John Herschel discovered this procedure in 1842. A positive image can be produced by exposing it to a source of ultraviolet light or sunlight. The process was popular in engineering circles well into the 20th century. The simple and low-cost process enabled them to produce large-scale copies of their work, referred to as blueprints.
