To celebrate the beginning of Brigham Young University Campus Education Week, the Harold B. Lee Library is opening a new exhibit, “Victorian Illustrations from Sketch to Print,” Monday, Aug. 19, in the Special Collections gallery on the first level.
The exhibit will be on view to the public through spring 2014. Admission is free.
The 19th century was a pinnacle time in illustrations for books and other printed materials. The exhibit will display Victorian illustrations from books, magazines, pamphlets and more.
Visitors to the exhibit 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.
