Cloth, large 8vo, 29 cm, [ii], 200 pp, ills. From the blurb: "The 1890s were peculiarly self-conscious times, nurtured on Whistler's art for art's sake. The kind of work produced (still principally black and white) was rarefied stuff; it included the work of Aubrey Beardsley, Charles Ricketts, Laurence Housman and the Glasgow School, issued in editions de luxe or on private presses. The seeds of the 1890s illustrative style were established much earlier and the most potent force behind them was William Morris. In 1890, Morris founded the celebrated Kelmscott Press and together with Sir Ed ward Burne-Jones designed and produced The Kelmscott Chaucer, one of the greatest illustrated works of the century. American artists greatly invigorated British illustration during this period too, and their contribution is dealt with in a separate chapter. This is an invaluable reference work for students, collectors and general readers as interest and re-assessment gather momentum in the 1990s. It deals in turn with the aesthetic books of the late 1880s; the debt to the Pre-Raphaelites; wood engraving; children's books and humorous art; Aubrey Beardsley and his followers; and the more painterly and graphic works of such artists as William Nicholson and Gordon Craig. Lavishly illustrated, the book also has an extensive bibliography and details of the principal museums and galleries where the artists' work is to be found."
