January, 1951. Creator: Shirley Markham Featured Print

January, 1951. Creator: Shirley Markham

January, 1951. Design for a calendar. Shirley Markham (1931-1999) studied Graphic Design and Illustration at Central School of Art in London from 1950-1952. The writer, artist, poet, and illustrator Mervyn Peake (1911-1968) was one of her tutors, and her style of drawing was also influenced by other British illustrators such as Edward Ardizzone, Quentin Blake and Edward Bawden. Markham spent time in the Dolomite Mountains in Italy, and also visited Rome, sketching classical buildings. After graduating from Central, she worked as a graphic designer, producing book illustrations, cartoons for comics, menus and programmes. She gave up her promising career however when she got married in 1957. Middle-class women at that time were expected to devote their energies to bringing up children and running the home, and despite her obvious talent, she lacked the confidence to return to illustration. Her portfolio remained in the family attic for many years, but now her work is published here for the first time

Draft of the...reestablishment of the Gregorian calendar, 29 August 1805, (1921). Creator: Unknown

Draft of the senate consultation on the reestablishment of the Gregorian calendar, 29 August 1805, (1921). Projet de senatus-consulte retablissement le calendrier gregorien'. Document signed by Emperor Napoleon I and dated Dec[ade] 12 Fructidor, an 13, dealing with the reintroduction of the Gregorian calendar, replacing the French Republican calendar. Also known as the French Revolutionary calendar, the system was implemented during the French Revolution and used for about 12 years from late 1793 to 1805, (and for 18 days by the Paris Commune in 1871). The intention had been to remove all religious and royalist influences from the calendar, and was part of a larger attempt at decimalisation in France. Facsimile document from "Napoleon", by Raymond Guyot, [H. Floury, Paris, 1921]

Stonehenge, Salisbury Plain, Wiltshire, 1894. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

Stonehenge, Salisbury Plain, Wiltshire, 1894. Creator: Unknown

Stonehenge, Salisbury Plain, Wiltshire, 1894. Prehistoric monument of standing stones aligned to the sunset of the winter solstice and the opposing sunrise of the summer solstice. Stonehenge was constructed from 3000 BC to 2000 BC by people who left no written records, so it's purpose remains unclear. The great Neolithic Sarsen circle was erected between 2500 and 2000 BC. From Beautiful Britain; views of our stately homes. [The Werner Company of Chicago, 1894]
