Punishment is a historical universal; the meting out of death and torture has reflected social morality since time immemorial. Through books, broadsides and pamphlets, the history of printed images has captured our fascination with macabre and brutal scenes of torture, execution, and punishment. Librarian Daniel Wee will take you on an illustrated journey through the history of punishment.
