These cool sailors scientists artists historians activists from #exxpedition expedition, we're at Ascus lab Summerhall about to do an immersive session with public at Edinburgh Festival about marine plastics 400 years in future. What does the microscope show us about us? What were we thinking and doing about it in 2017? @exxpedition_ #lucygilliam #marineplastic #exxpedition #katieturnbull #jessvanhorssen #ascusartandscience @ascusartandscience #sciart #scicomm #edfringe #lab #distractinglysexy #stem #oceanplastics #saveoursea #stopmarinedebris #collaboration #sailing #womeninsciart

Diamond snake. Ilustración de Helena Forde para "Snakes of Australia", de Gerard Krefft, publicado en 1869. Ella y su hermana Harriet fueron ilustradoras de historia natural. Los vivos colores y el gran detallismo de sus obras sigue siendo digno de admiración hoy día.

March was a busy month for me, (particularly as I travelled to New York to participate in an exhibition!) so I ran out of days in which to post #5WomenArtists. Mea culpa! Here, then, is a work by the renowned German-born science illustrator, Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717). This striking image comes from a posthumous edition of 'Maria Sybilla Meriaen Over de Voorteeling en Wonderbaerlyke Veranderingen der Surinaemsche Insecten' (1719). In it, an insect in several stages of metamorphosis swarms over its host, a pineapple plant.

Harriet Goodhue prepared this and other botanical illustrations for Dr. Stephen West Williams' manuscript, 'Botanical Description'; compiled in 1817. Goodhue was only 17 when she worked on this project. She and Williams married the following year. As adults, their two daughters later prepared botanical illustrations for Dr. Williams' lectures, demonstrating a talent which ran in the family! This item is in the collection of Historic Deerfield Library and is available on the Internet Archive.

Elizabeth Blackwell (1707-1758) was a Scottish botanist and illustrator who is best known for 'A Curious Herbal', published in 125 weekly installments between 1736-1739. Blackwell prepared her illustrations at London's Apothecaries' Garden (now @chelsea_physic_garden) and engraved, printed and marketed her work independently. At this time her personal life was in considerable difficulty, and the project was conceived as a fundraiser. Blackwell's husband spent two years in Highgate Prison after he abandoned his medical practice and went into debt. He later restored his practice in Sweden, as Royal Physician, but was subsequently accused of treason and was executed. After her husband's death, Blackwell's work was compiled into an official, enlarged work, 'Herbarium Blackwellianum' which was published in Nuremberg and endorsed by Carl Linnaeus. This item is in the collection of the Missouri Botanical Garden and is available on the Internet Archive. At left, is an image of an added, engraved title page from vol. 1-2; at right, an exceptional​ illustration of a corn poppy.

It's #WomensHistoryMonth and the perfect time to highlight #WomeninSciArt! I am taking the #5WomenArtists challenge from @womeninthearts and will post (at least!) five women artists throughout this month. Anna Atkins (1799-1871) was a British botanist and pioneer of photography, whose cyanotypes of seaweed specimens appeared in her book, 'Photographs of British Algae: Cyanotype Impressions'; published over several volumes between 1843 and 1853. This image depicts a blade of Carex grass and is in the collection of @eastmanmuseum in Rochester, NY.
