The Swedish company Sköna Ting carefully selected, together with the Karl Blossfeldt foundation an unique selection from the original collection of this German photographer. (1865-1932) These special reproductions are printed on high quality FSC art print paper. The collection consists of posters in many different sizes, greeting cards, tags and notebooks.
Karl Blossfeldt’s extensive collection of plant portraits reveals unexpected shapes and patterns in nature. He designed his own camera and made photographs that showcase both scientific precision as well as an artist’s eye for composition. This unique mix became a great success within modern art and photography. Blossfeldt taught sculpting for most of his life, and his photo collection was first and foremost used to teach his students about the patterns of nature. But after his work had been exhibited in Berlin in 1926 the teacher became a recognized artist. Two years later the book Urformen der Kunst was published, and it became one of the 20th century’s most influential and significant photo books.
Besides the Blossfledt collection Sköna Ting has an extensive vintage collection of botanical posters, greeting cards etc.
