Comprising several brothers, with George Dalziel and Edward Dalziel being the most notable, the firm was instrumental in shaping Victorian visual culture. They worked closely with renowned illustrators of the time, such as George Cruikshank and John Tenniel, to produce engravings for various publications, including books, periodicals, and newspapers. Their work was not limited to any single genre; they contributed to children's literature, religious texts, and works of fiction and non-fiction alike. The Dalziel Brothers were known for their high-quality wood engravings, a technique that allowed for more detailed and nuanced illustrations compared to earlier methods. Their contributions to the field of illustration and printmaking were significant, and they left an indelible mark on the visual language of the Victorian era." — Bing. ¶ Wood-engraving, English -- 19th century.
