Thomas Bewick

Master of the vignette, the encapsulated narrative - Thomas Bewick's wood engravings and cuts show the potential for spot illustration to provide substantive punctuation to a body of text. The spot Illustration can tend to operate decoratively as well as a means of informing/visualising the narrative.

Can suggest drama and theatrics as well as creating mood and ambience - scene setting to assist the reader.
