Cyanotype was developed in 1842 and is one of the earliest photographic techniques. It is the original process of printing with sunlight. Characteristic of this technique are the rich Prussian blue monochromatic prints you get.

Well into the 20th century, cyanotype was famous as an inexpensive method for reproducing photographs, documents and maps. It was incredibly widely used for floor plans & building plans - hence the still-used architectural term blueprint. Cyanotype was also widely used for making prints of biological specimens in the field - so-called photograms.
