North Country Barn Dance part 04
Composer: Lowthian, Caroline ( Prescott, Cyril A, Mrs )
The introduction of lithography in this period had a huge impact on the types of illustrations that could be produced, it was cheap and images could be produced in colour. Illustrated covers began to be popular during the 19th Century. They provided artists with the opportunity to demonstrate their skills, because the song topics covered such a large range of subjects, from people and animals, to buildings and landscapes. The covers would have made an impact on the public, acting just as CD covers do today.
