"Lavishly illustrated, The Moxon Tennyson by Simon Cooke makes important contributions to studies of Tennyson, print culture, and Victorian visuality. Cooke challenges prior scholarship's focus on Tennyson's Pre-Raphaelite illustrators, instead including all Tennyson's illustrators in his illuminating, interactive assessment of poetry, printing, and Victorian art in this 1857 publishing landmark." -- Linda K. Hughes, coeditor of Replication in the Long Nineteenth Century: Re-makings and Reproductions
"Simon Cooke focuses his very considerable erudition concerning Victorian illustration in this new book-length study of the Moxon Tennyson of 1857. Eschewing traditional interpretations of the Moxon Tennyson as a landmark of Pre-Raphaelite illustration, Cooke argues for a shared idiom among the eight artist collaborators. The five chapters of the book provide lenses for refractions of this argument, culminating in Cooke's claim that the Moxon Tennyson was a 'workshop of new creative attitudes for book illustration' and a turning point in the history of illustration itself. Throughout this study, Cooke's deep knowledge of book production and illustrative techniques shines, as does his clearly written prose. Lavishly illustrated, this edition generously reproduces many of the illustrations that underpin Cooke's detailed argument." -- Lisa Surridge, University of Victoria
