Visions of the Jinn
Illustrators of the Arabian Nights
In this beautifully-produced book, illustrations of various Western editions of The Arabian Nights from the eighteenth to the twentieth century are analysed. With artists including the famous (Dulac, Dore, Brangwyn), and the less wellknown (Coster or Letchford), Irwin's study teaches much about the visual discovery of the Near East in modern times.
