From 1830, the number of illustrators grew in line with the revolution in the world of print and engraving. Most nineteenth-century artists worked for the book trade at some time. This ‘journalism of the pencil’ (Théophile Gautier) could be either a stepping stone to fame, or, more likely, a relegation to an art regarded as basely commercial. Illustrators were often accused of betraying writers’ intentions, and they in turn suffered from being betrayed by the engravers reproducing their drawings. This book takes stock of the life and work of three exemplary artists: Rodolphe Töpffer (1799–1846), who was both a writer and an illustrator, and has been famously credited with inventing the comic strip; J.-J. Grandville (1803–1847), who fought for the illustrator’s status as a professional; and Gustave Doré (1832–1883), undoubtedly the most famous of all the illustrators, who embodied his trade in every aspect of his life.
