Illustrations of Historic Colorado

Illustrations of Historic Colorado is a beautiful and intriguing collection of over 250 nineteenth-century illustrations which create a stunning visual mosaic. Before the dominance of the unblinking eye of the camera, it was the artist who allowed the reader to experience the indigenous people, the spectacular scenery, intrepid mountain men, mineral-crazed prospectors and frenzied boom towns of Colorado. However their biases, prejudices and aspirations often appear in their creations.
