October 13th, 2022 Program

Author Michael Hancher will discuss “Revising The Tenniel Illustrations to the ‘Alice’ Books: 1985 to 2019 and Beyond”

 

The new edition includes updates to the twelve chapters of the first edition of this study; highlights from the six new chapters, which focus on material aspects of book production (image engraving, electrotyping, printing, coloring, reengraving); and supplemental reflections on typography and book curation.

Michael Hancher has written about Victorian writers and artists (Robert Browning, Dickens, Macaulay, Carroll, Tenniel, Hunt, Millais); intention and interpretation; speech-act theory, pragmatics, and the law; close reading and digital search; the history and rationale of pictorial illustration in dictionaries; and, most recently, “Seeing and Tagging Things in Pictures” (Representations 155 [2021]). A past president of the Dictionary Society of North America, he is professor emeritus in the Department of English at the University of Minnesota.

Events are held at the Thurber House at 77 Jefferson Avenue in Columbus. Doors open at 7 pm and presentations begin at 7:30 pm. There is parking in the rear and the metered parking in front is free after 6 pm.
