Hereby presenting an excerpt from The Art of Illustration (1896) by Henry Blackburn. It tells the story of today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page.
“The tendency of the time seems to be to read less and less, and to depend more upon pictorial records of events. There are underlying reasons for this on which we must not dwell; the point of importance to illustrators is the fact that there is an insatiable demand for ‘pictures’ which tell us something- quickly and accurately, in a language which every nation can understand.”
