Detailed Description

The concept of extra-illustration is simple: choose a book, identify significant people, places, and things in it, then insert pictures of them in appropriate places as visual annotations to the text. Each extra-illustrated book is thus the unique creation of a former owner. This exhibition examines the art and the practice of extra-illustration from its rise in the late eighteenth century through its decline over a hundred years later, with a special focus on Shakespeare’s works.

Our exhibition catalog includes a history of extra-illustration, examples of extra-illustration from works of Shakespeare and instructions with images on how to extra-illustrate a book.  Curated by Erin Blake and Stuart Sillars.

Paperback, 2010.  ISBN:  978-0-2959-9023-1.  29 color images, 23 pages.
