This neat book features a collection of selected woodcuts, engravings and lithograph images showing African and Asian people which was circulated in western magazines and books of the 18th and 19th centuries. Some of the images can be viewed as problematic in their context, while simultaneously offering important insight into the political and sociological depictions of the time.
A number of international writer-contributors have been invited to contribute their thoughts on a selection of the images; image captions place the pictures in their historical context; and there is further information about how the reproduction of images in print developed technically from medieval times.
“If we stand tall it is because we stand on the shoulders of those who came before us.” —African Proverb
