Not much commentary need really accompany the scan of my 1962 edition of Journal of the Plague year. I’m speechless with admiration at the simple effectiveness of the two colour woodcut style composition. Admittedly it’s attractiveness does little to convey the gloomy misery of the contents, but then again good. One can look at it between descriptions of festering pustules and mountains of rotting dead.
