T. H. Robinson Shirley Illustrations

I have been quite busy this morning uploading a lot of illustrations at the Bronteana Resource Site. It will take me some time to actually get all of them linked, but I hope to have each artist catalogued over the next few days. For now, something a little different. There are 8 full-colour illustrations of Charlotte Bronte's Shirley available here. I have scanned them from my own edition so I have a few things to say about the volume. It is a Collins Clear Type Press edition, although not one of their lovely palm-sized books. This one is very large by comparison (I have the Collins Clear Type Press editions of Jane Eyre and Villette as well- their illustrations will be scanned in eventually...). Also, since these are from my own edition, I have them in 100 dpi, but they are also available in a much higher resolution upon request.

I thought Caroline would look a bit younger than is portrayed here :)

They are nice illustrations though!

The colouration is a bit odd. They used a peculiar technique using a lot of pure pigments and stippling. It does't quite work sometimes ;)
