Algae cards is a series of collectable cards created by Dekkers & Co. that tell the story of finding, identifying and printing cyanotypes* of algae. Not many people particularly have a love for biology, but a lot of people love nature. Dekkers & Co. brings them together whilst speaking to the collector in each of us. Algae cards is an ongoing project with the aim of publishing unique species as the project evolves. Start your collection of natural curiosities here.
