Description - Print in Transition by Laurel Brake
This work examines the outbreak of print in late-Victorian Britain. It joins categories that are normally separated: literature/popular culture, books/magazines, publishers/newsagents, and media studies/media history. The approach is through material culture, archival material that is theorized and gendered. Chapters focus on authorship, production, and gender in relation to Dickens, Pater, Ruskin, Eliot, Symons, and James, and serials such as "Master Humphrey's Clock", the "Westminster Review", "Artist" and "Journal of Home Culture", "Publishers' Circular", "Yellow Book" and "Savoy".
