Excerpt from The Making of Pictures: Twelve Short Talks With Young People
It has always been so; it may be safely said that it will continue to be so; while in the period in which we live, when mechanical adjustments and scientific processes have varied the methods of Ob tain... ing pictures, and multiplied their number almost infinitely, a very large part of the education of our country is carried on by means of pictures. They are found in all directions: magazines are profusely illustrated; books and papers are full of them; the photograph, the lithograph, the engraving, are produced in enormous quantities in Short, we live in a world of pictures, and consciously, or uncon sciously, we are receiving numberless impressions from them. It is these impressions which, as I have just said, educate us; for all sorts of ideas regarding men and things find their way to our minds through seeing pictures which represent what is going on in life.
