Abstract

As the development of printing technologies advanced, so did the variety of methods used to illustrate books. Colour images became commonplace and cheaper to produce. This 1903 American edition of Lewis Carroll’s Hunting of the Snark (first published in 1876) contains illustrations by celebrated American artist Peter Newell (1862-1924). Newell mainly worked for Harper & Brothers Publishers (think Harper’s Bazaar), but was also well known for his comics, and writing and illustrating children’s books. Newell is in good company with the other famous illustrators of Carroll’s works, John Tenniel (1820-1914) for Alice, and Henry Holiday (1839-1927) for The Hunting of the Snark.
