Tom's Reverie and final paragraphs of the text. (1870s). Illustration by Fred Barnard for Dickens's Martin Chuzzlewit LIV), page 423. [This formatting of the letterpress, the double columns and double frame, is intended to recall the format of Household Words, Dickens's vastly popular and influential journal in the 1850s.] The framed area is 21.2 x 15 cm., so that the image is surrounded by Dickens's words; consequently, for the reader the mixed-media page is what Arlene M. Jackson terms "a narrative-pictorial synthesis" (65). Scanned image and text by Philip V. Allingham.
