A lithographic colour print issued by Harvard College Observatory in 1876, showing the corona around the Sun during a solar eclipse. The pearly and ghostly light is only seen during the brief period of totality when the Moon blocks the dazzlingly bright surface of the Sun. The corona forms the outer and very tenuous atmosphere of the Sun, an envelope of highly ionised gas, superheated to over a million degrees centigrade. Etienne Léopold Trouvelot, a French artist, made these sketches during the solar eclipse of 7 August 1869 from Shelbyville, Kentucky in the United States © The Royal Photographic Society Collection at the V&A
Roller blinds that add a little drama and a lot of impact. Combining stunning imagery with premium quality materials and mechanisms, we’ve designed our blinds so that your image can be seen from top to toe - known as reverse rolled. Our blinds are printed single sided as standard, are supplied with a beaded metal chain for a smooth operation and versatile fitting brackets for attachment inside or outside the window recess. We also supply a control chain safety clip to help keep the loose continuous chain out of reach of young children.
