Now in paper. This is a comprehensive guide to the many thousands of photographs, paintings, drawings and diagrams appearing in top periodicals. The present volume, extending coverage from 1982 through 1986, furnishes a handy reference to hard-to-locate illustrations in National Geographic, American Heritage, Natural History, Ebony, Sports Illustrated, Travel/Holiday, Smithsonian, National Wildlife, and Life magazine. The new work follows the patterns of scope, style, and arrangement set by the compiler in Volume V (1984). Each illustration within each journal article is treated separately to provide thorough subject coverage, and there is an extensive system of cross-references. Several main listings operate as key locators to identify every example of a given subject category to be found alphabetically within the book. Some examples are animals, architectural structures, art forms, fish, flowering plants, peoples, occupations, transportation and weather. There is a major emphasis on historical and socio-cultural phenomena.
A typical citation under a subject entry includes an abbreviated journal title; volume number; inclusive pagination; date of publication; identification of type of illustration as painting, drawing or photograph; indication of color or black and white; and size of illustration.
