Emblem by John Manning
Book DescriptionThe emblem has remained popular with artists and writers to the present day: William Blake in particular employed the device to illustrate themes of the child and childishness, and Robert Louis Stevenson in the 19th century and Ian Hamilton Finlay in the 20th transformed the emblem, using it in new and subversive ways. The text also detects an emblematic presence within the imagery of contemporary advertising.

Obscenity, Hardback (August 2008)» View all books by John Manning
Exploring obscenity in all its forms, this book illustrates how works of art and literature have been deliberately offensive to notions of 'good taste', but also how they have embraced brilliant inventiveness, wild mirth, childish exuberance, sublimity of thought, the scatological, uncommon erudition, and the wise folly of the humanists.
