Chapter Summary

This section of the book Paper Tiger: A Visual History of the Thylacine contains colour plates, which include pictures of Zebra or Dog-faced Dasyurus in Georges Cuvier, Edward Lear drawings, and Tasmanian wolf. The role of visual culture in embodying perceptions of animals and then reinforcing or producing attitudes and actions is a concept that is central to the book. The book analyses eighty illustrations of the thylacine in influential printed literature - scientific journals, zoological and natural history publications, popular books about animals, zoo guides and newspapers and magazines - that were executed between 1803, when the first British settlers arrived on the island of Tasmania, and 1936 when the last captive thylacine died in a Hobart zoo.

Keywords: colour plates; Edward Lear drawings; thylacine
