Bleak house by Charles Dickens( Book )

7 editions published between 1857 and 1875 in English and French and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bleak House, Dickens's most daring experiment in the narration of a complex plot, challenges the reader to make connections - between the fashionable and the outcast, the beautiful and the ugly, the powerful and the victims. Nowhere in Dickens's later novels is his attack on an uncaring society more imaginatively embodied, but nowhere either is the mixture of comedy and angry satire more deftly managed. Bleak House defies a single description. It is a mystery story, in which Esther Summerson discovers the truth about her birth and her unknown mother's tragic life. It is a murder story, which comes to a climax in a thrilling chase, led by one of the earliest detectives in English fiction, Inspector Bucket. And it is a fable about redemption, in which a bleak house is transformed by the resilience of human love
A history of British magazine design by Anthony Quinn( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What does a magazine's look and feel say about it? Sometimes more than its written content. Starting with the advent of two periodicals ; Punch in 1841 and the Illustrated London News a year later ; this groundbreaking study investigates the design history of British magazines over the past 170 years, right up to the beginnings of digital distribution. This pioneering survey of a still-developing story encompasses graphic design, typography, photography, and innovative print technology, and explores why magazines have looked how they do and how they have changed over time. The wealth of superb illustrations is drawn from the V&A's National Art Library's unparalleled archive of periodicals
