Books Behind Pictures

This part of the site offers various documents and references related to the pictures in our galleries, and to the books from which they were taken. Browsing this page will give you access to text excerpts that put some of the illustrations back into their original context, notes about the lives or careers of some illustrators are also available. In addition, a few articles provide descriptions of books and of their content, and try to clarify to some extent the circumstances of their publication.
