Illustrations in pen and ink

It’s exciting to see a number of illustrated publications starting to come online via Trove Australia.   These include the Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers, and The Illustrated Sydney News. This quality drawing – Off for the Holidays – is from The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil which was printed in the offices of The Argus in Melbourne from 1873 to 1899.  17 December 1881.
