SIDELIGHTS: Paul Goldman once told CA: "In recent years I have worked intensively on the illustrated book and periodical in nineteenth-century England. I have become interested in the relationship between image and text, and especially the audience and the readership for such material. I believe that the art of illustration during this period has been somewhat neglected, and I hope that, through my work, contemporary readers may see the quality and distinction of many of the designs and engravings. The literature, especially the poetry which the images accompanied, is also ripe for a reasoned reappraisal."
