9780199590353: Visions of the Jinn: Illustrators of the Arabian Nights (Studies in the Arcadian Library)

In this richly-illustrated book, illustrations of various Western editions of The Arabian Nights from the eighteenth to the twentieth century are presented and analysed. Visions of the Jinn is simultaneously a closely-focused study of a special case in the history of book illustration, an account of the evolution of an important strand of visual fantasy and a presentation of a hitherto neglected area of Orientalism. Some of the artists - Dulac, Dore, Brangwyn - are famous. Many others, such as Coster or Letchford, are almost totally unknown. In the course of the book, the discussion also reveals much about the visual discovery of the Near East in modern times. This volume will make an important contribution both to the history of book illustration and, more generally, to the history of the book.

Review:


"Visions of Jinn is chock-full of interesting information and beautiful pictures."--Children's Literature Association Quarterly


"This is a book that has been begging to be written, and it has found exactly the right author. Irwin is one of today's experts on all matters relating to The Arabian Nights...[A]bout two-thirds of the pages are beautifully reproduced examples of illustrations in their original color or black and white...[W]ill be fascinating to all studying the history of book illustration, both the art and the technology...[A]n essential purchase for comprehensive collections on the history of book illustration or specialized collections on historical world literature."--Library Journal


"Visions of the Jinn is part bibliographical exposition, part dazzling lantern show: its 164 colour-saturated facsimiles, photographs and black-and-white images and their accompanying analysis offer a visually stunning and sensitive account."--Times Literary Supplement


"A scholarly but lively overview of the history of illustrating the Nights in the West...[S]uperb"--The Art Newspaper
