A parallel can be drawn to the history of what was formerly called “primitive art,” which until the later twentieth century was written from the point of view of Western high art and rarely as a history in itself. This book attempts to sketch out a history of its own for illustrated print media. To give some idea of the novelty of this material, we should note that the word “illustrator” was not in common usage until well into the nineteenth century. Artists who produced drawings for books were simply artists, “designers” in nineteenth-century England, dessinateurs in France.

Finally—and not least—I hope that this study will be valuable to the general reader simply because it unearths a vast quantity of heretofore unfamiliar visual imagery that is rich and rewarding, and because it illuminates how our world of images, from tabloid newspapers to comics to the nightly news, came into being.
