From the Call for Essays:

Forms and Genres of Eighteenth-Century Book Illustration
Edited by Leigh G. Dillard and Christina Ionescu

Proposals due by 1 December 2018; completed chapters due in January 2020

Proposals are invited for a collection of essays designed for students and established researchers seeking an introduction to the field of eighteenth-century illustration, with special attention to its forms and genres. We invite proposals on a wide variety of topics, with particular interest in the following to fill gaps in our existing commitments:
• ballads
• broadsides
• children’s books
• criminal histories
• ephemera
• the epistolary tale
• funerary elegies
• the fantastic
• the historical romance
• literary almanacs
• literary galleries
• the philosophical tale
• songbooks

When possible, examples should be chosen from more than one national tradition. Please send 300–500 word proposals to Christina Ionescu (cionescu@mta.ca) and Leigh Dillard (leigh.dillard@ung.edu) by 1 December 2018. The deadline for the submission of completed chapters will be January 2020.
