Victorian Illustrated Book

Richard Maxwell (Redaktør)

«A substantial, original contribution and a considerable pleasure to read, The Victorian Illustrated Book defines and goes a long way toward filling an important gap in scholarship on the history of nineteenth-century publishing. It will interest collectors and bibliophiles as well as students of publishing history, inter-arts relations, and Victorian studies. -John O. Jordan, University of California, Santa Cruz, coeditor of Victorian Literature and the Victorian Visual Imagination»

Throughout the 19th century, but most intensely in the reign of Queen Victoria, England and Scotland produced an unprecedented range of extraordinary illustrated books. Images in books became a central feature of Victorian culture. They were at once prestigious and popular - a kind of entertainment - but equally a place for pondering fundamental questions about history, geography, language, time, commerce, design and vision itself. Concentrating on the use of illustration in literature - especially novels, poems and children's books - the essays collected in this text address a wide chronological and stylistic range of work. They offer insights into such diverse topics as: the century's best-known illustrators, including George Cruickshank, William Morris and Aubrey Beardsley; the use of words as images; the intersection of children's books and shopping; the use of maps in fiction; the decline of illustrated volumes after Queen Victoria's death; and the proposal that Victorian illustration was a major inspiration for modernist and postmodernist experiments with the form of the book.
