In this book of 40 essays on illustration, the renowned art critic and illustrator Tom Lubbock (1957-2011) focuses on English artists using graphic media, the latter broadly interpreted to include not only drawings and prints, but works such as the Uffington White Horse and Harry Beck's Tube map. Lubbock's subjects range chronologically from the Bronze Age to the 1970s, but with the emphasis on the great artists of the late 18th and early 19th century: Palmer, Blake, Fuseli and Bewick.
