This vintage photogravure is from the first and only edition of Wunder in der Natur, published in 1942. Original print.

Initially intended as classroom teaching aids, the photographs of Karl Blossfeldt (1865-1932) have become iconic images. Blossfeldt used his photographs to demonstrate to students that the best engineering solutions for industrial design had already been anticipated in nature. Images that were initially intended to bring an awareness of structure turned out to be works of art and a source of beauty and awe. Each sensual, mysterious plant portrait imprints itself into the mind of the viewer, never to be forgotten.
