An ancient art form dating back to cave wall paintings from the Paleolithic age, silhouette illustrations reached their height of popularity in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, when they served as excellent -- yet inexpensive -- forms of portraiture. Gathered from a variety of rare sources, this collection of 690 silhouettes displays an array of subjects, each filled with a charming, nostalgic flavor. Images include children playing, household animals in a variety of poses, couples embracing, people working and handling everyday chores, and much more. Pure delight for artists, illustrators, and craftspeople!
