John Everett Millais (1829-96) is less well-known for his designs for illustrations even though he made 400 over a period of 30 years. This book reveals the variety and quality of Millais' illustrations through reproductions of drawings, watercolours, wood-engravings, and printed books and periodicals.

'... this scholarly museum publication details the unmatched collection of Millais's works on paper in the Birmingham Museums and Art Gallery, while providing a fine overview of this undervalued aspect of the artist's oeuvre. ... This is a commendable and valuable publication.' The Burlington Magazine 'This is a commendable and valuable publication.' The Burlington Magazine, October 05 '...an authoritative survey...Beautifully Designed by Sally Jeffery, it served not only to accompany the exhibition held in Birmingham and Leighton House, London, in 2004-5, but also acts as a useful catalogue raisonne for this part of the incoparable Birmingham collection of Pre-Raphaelite prints and drawings... this is an ingenious and valuable way to produce collection catalogues, so sorely needed yet rarely considered by museums today.' Print Quarterly XXIII 2006
