This issue spotlights several illustrators who could be seen to fall into the category of unsung heroes. We look at ways in which illustrators in the first half of the 19th Century gained freedom of artistic impression (Cruikshank, Doyle, Phiz, Leighton, Hunt et al).
Next is an overview of the remarkable collection of illustration held in the archives of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, bold design being very important in getting across important safety information.
Next up is a review of an exhibition given over to the library of the Dukes of Savoy, the illustrated manuscriptions are frequently breath taking. This is followed by an intriguing introduction to the art of the silhouette.
There is a moving look at the artistic response to the bomb that exploded in Baghdad's book district and finally a look at Lorenzo Perrone's White Books where casts of books become works of art.
