Line and Form
by Walter Crane
Publisher: G. Bell & Sons, Ltd. 1900
The substance of the following chapters on Line and Form originally formed a series of lectures delivered to the students of the Manchester Municipal School of Art. There is no pretension to an exhaustive treatment of a subject it would be difficult enough to exhaust, and it is dealt with in a way intended to bear rather upon the practical work of an art school, and to be suggestive and helpful to those face to face with the current problems of drawing and design.

The term 'drawing' is applied loosely; it is meant to connote a medium of great immediacy conducive to direct materialization of a concept, rather than implying the elimination of color or an insistence upon other technical restrictions.
by Cooper, Maurice - Dodd, Mead and Company
While the impulse to satirize public men in picture is probably as old as satiric verse, the political cartoon, as an effective agent in molding public opinion, is essentially a product of modern conditions. Its success depends upon its timeliness.
by Henry Blackburn - W. H. Allen & Co.
The object of 'The Art of Illustration' is to explain the modern systems of Book and Newspaper Illustration, and especially the methods of drawing for what is commonly called 'process', on which so many artists are now engaged.
