Yellow Book

Yellow Book, English illustrated quarterly published (1894–97) in book form in London. Henry Harland was literary editor, and Aubrey Beardsley, whose exotic and provocative drawings brought immediate attention to the publication, was art editor until 1896. The Yellow Book was a miscellany of short stories, articles, poetry, and drawings. It was able to draw material from writers with wide differences of style and viewpoint, but its emphasis was on the bizarre, the "modern," and the aesthetic. It included among its contributors Oscar Wilde, Max Beerbohm, John Davidson, Richard Le Gallienne, William Butler Yeats, Ernest Dowson, and Arnold Bennett.
