"Craig's (c. 1765-c. 1818) Itinerant Traders? takes as its purpose the promotion of London as a city of beauty and order by reason of its monuments and noble buildings, which derive scale and human purpose from a brood of picturesque outcasts. It unites topography with portraiture in pointillist designs explicated by two essays per image? Craig's designs reverse the normal priority of foregrounds over backgrounds; its figures, posed and decorous, are pretexts for their settings; historic London buildings rendered in the factual manner of architectural drafting?The advantage setting enjoys over character is still clearer in the book's commentaries, which, matching the two-fold division of Craig's images, address background and figures in two blocks of prose using two type fonts" (Sean Shesgreen, Images of the Outcast: The Urban Poor in the Cries of London, pp. 157-158).Abbey, Life, 271; Adams, London Illustrated, 89; Hiler, p. 232; Tooley 370.
