 A Chronicle of England, B.C. 55-A.D. 1485 by James William Edmund Doyle . London: Longman, Green, Longman, Roberts, & Green, 1864.

One of the latest treasures to be added to our collection is this hi-spot of Victorian color printing.

Within the text of Doyle's history of England are 81 wood-engraved illustrations masterfully engraved and colored by Edmund Evans.

Evans perfected the chromoxylography process which transformed the illustrated children's book. His work helped propel the likes of Walter Crane, Kate Greenaway, and Randolph Caldecott to their places as the premier illustrators of the time.

His major of work of the 1860's was Doyle's A Chronicle of England.

From the Collection of Malcolm Moore.

If you're planning on attending the upcoming Folio Forum on March 27th, here's some background reading - an article on Michael Pertschuk's new book. Focusing on the role of Ralph Nader in mobilizing consumer resistance to corporate lobbying, it makes the point that the Warren Magnuson committee was the core or resistance to corporate power in the U.S. Senate. The key figure in this, beside Pertschuk, was Seattle attorney Jerry Grinstein, still very much an influential civic figure in Washington state.

 'Keep Hope Alive' - The Rev. Jesse Jackson at the 1988 Democratic Convention.

A year later this 4pp. piece was published on the campus of the University of Iowa.

Here we are almost 30 years later and hope begins to spring.  The #MeToo movement has put violence against women front and center in our country's dialogue and it is not going away.

Our hats are off to these courageous women at the University of Iowa who efforts have not gone to waste.

And what a fun cartoon to end with.

Sexism Kills. Iowa City: Women's Caucus of New Wave & New Wave at the University of Iowa, [1989]. 1pp. folded.
