Literary classics stand on their own, and yet some of them are forever linked to their illustrations. Citing some distinctly British examples, the author of Mr. Lear traces the collaboration of Henry Fielding and William Hogarth, as well as Wordsworth and Thomas Bewick, a poet and engraver working separately but imbued with the spirit of their age. With representative art shown throughout, here too is a look at how Paradise Lost and Pilgrim's Progress were illustrated in their era, and an overview of Charles Dickens's fruitful partnership with Phiz.
