On September 30, 2010, we welcomed Professor Kristin Mahoney and her students enrolled in English 410: Studies in Literary History (Decadence).

Among the Special Collections resources introduced to the students was The Yellow Book, the late 19th century avant-garde periodical published in London from 1894 to 1897.

Co-founded by Aubrey Beardsley who also served as its art editor, The Yellow Book was associated with aestheticism and decadence and frequently featured Beardsley's striking drawings.
