Old-Fashioned Illustrations of Books, Reading and Writing

Front Cover
Courier Corporation, Jan 1, 1992 - Design - 32 pages

Commercial artists, craftspeople, and do-it-yourselfers will have an unlimited supply of book-and-writing-related illustrations at their fingertips with this handy, inexpensive volume. Selected from rare turn-of-the-century sources (Harper's Monthly, Scribner's, Punch, La Vie Parisienne, Life, and other periodicals), 347 royalty-free cuts offer delightfully nostalgic renderings of men, women, and children reading and writing at desks, under trees, at the beach, in libraries, on romantic window seats, before the fireplace, in wicker armchairs, and in numerous other settings. You'll also find useful spot illustrations of reading and writing paraphernalia from days gone by as well as a gallery of 20 distinguished literary figures — Cervantes, Byron, Shelley, Wordsworth, Shakespeare, Tennyson, and others.
