Victorian Illustrations on Display in August
BYU’s Harold B. Lee Library is pleased to announce the opening of a new exhibit, “Victorian Illustrators from Sketch to Print”. Located on level one in the Special Collections gallery space, the exhibit displays Victorian illustrations from books, magazines, pamphlets and more. The 19th century was a pinnacle in illustrations for books and other printed materials. The exhibit opens August 18th 2013, with the beginning of BYU Education Week.
Visitors to the exhibit space will be able to view original illustrations as well as their printed versions from Sir John Tenniel, famous for illustrating Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, original printing plates from Charles Dickens novels and art from Aubrey Beardsley, who illustrated the works of Oscar Wilde.
The exhibit will be on view to the public through Spring 2014. Admission is free.
