We report on the development and use of a highly anisotropic magnetic metamaterial for near-field imaging. The material consists of an array of Swiss Roll structures, resonant near 21.3 MHz, with a peak value of relative permeability ~35. At this peak, the material transfers an input magnetic field pattern to the output face without loss of intensity and with a spatial resolution equal to the roll diameter. It behaves as a near-field imaging device consisting of a bundle of magnetic wires.
