Making sense of broadside ballad illustrations in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries

Abstract:

Illustrations of cheap print are often described as unrelated to the textual content, or randomly chosen by the printers. This chapter describes different ways in which illustrations on broadside ballads relate to the texts of the songs, and suggests reasons for the changes between three modes by which images addressed the 17th- and 18th-century viewer: reflective, narrative, and allusive.
