About this collection

The illustrations database has been growing piecemeal from a variety of sources since 2010 in response to an interest expressed by both the college's Allen Art Museum and the Art Department for more access to named artists, illustrators, designers, and techniques relating to images on paper in our flat files and books.  Many of our illustrations are not cataloged, and most often illustrators, engravers, book binders, and designers are not noted in conventional bibliographic descriptions.  This database seeks to make this information available (in samples) with images as a means to extend access and interest in our rare book holdings.  Related collections include the Schoonmaker Collection of American Publishers Design bindings, and our Fine and Private Press holdings.
