AUR Library Virtual Exhibition - Illustration

The AUR Library has created a second virtual exhibition of scholarly resources on the web. This exhibition has the topic of Illustration on the Web, and its purpose is to attempt to show just a few of the works on illustration, and examples of illustration, that are available on the web.

The areas are divided into: Books, Bindings, Children's Books, Humor, Landscape & Architecture, Advertising, Medicine, Natural History, Politics, and Activism. Some highlights of the materials available are the haunting graphic novel God's Man by Lind Ward (1929), Thomas Nast's political cartoons, Description de l'Egypte from Napoleon's invasion of Egypt, to posters of the Spanish Civil War, plus many more.

Don't forget our previous exhibition dedicated to Rome and Italy.

Both exhibitions are available through the AUR Library Catalog by clicking in the Quick Links area.
