Leading scholars from the United States and England analyze the rich interplay of illustration with text to exemplify the means by which visual culture evolved. This important work contains eight new essays, arranged chronologically. Scholars examine the visual insurgence that emerged from 1770-1930 by means of analyzing illustrations from novels, plays, poetry, ballets, and children's books. In addition, these notable scholars examine the impact of book covers and jackets, prints, bindings, papers, title pages, and paintings on American and English readers spanning 160 years.
