The Fitzwilliam Museum’s catalogue to accompany its 2006 exhibition Literary Circles: Artist, Author, Word and Image in Britain 1800-1920 has been short-listed for the prestigious The Art Newspaper & AXA Art Exhibition Catalogue Award 2007.

The collection - displayed in the Museum’s Mellon Gallery from October to December 2006 - explored the intriguing relationship between text and image in nineteenth-century Britain. Focusing on objects as diverse as illustrated narratives, caricature and artists’ journals, Literary Circles exhibited works by William Morris, Edward Burne-Jones, George du Maurier and Kate Greenaway amongst others, and was one of the Museum’s most popular exhibitions last year.

The nominated Literary Circles catalogue, which features full-colour reproductions of the exhibition’s works with in-depth commentary by its creators, is available for purchase in the Fitzwilliam Museum’s shop (RRP £6.95).
