[squarefocus] Tales of The Unforgotten: Tiger Sketch - Iconographia Zoologica. A Paper Animal Kingdom from Special Collections of the University of Amsterdam, 1879
A sketch of a tiger that was published in Le Monde illustré in 1879. Le Monde illustré was a leading 19th-century illustrated newsmagazine in France. Many of the highly realistic prints published in the medium of wood-engraving were actually made from photographs, at a time when photographic reproduction in print was not technically feasible until the late nineteenth century. Le Monde illustré is in many ways similar to the Illustrated London News.
