The Dome:
A Quarterly Containing Examples of All the Arts
Oldmeadow, Ernest J. (editor)
London: The Unicorn Press, 1897-03 / 1898-05

The first series of The Dome appeared quarterly and sold for the very modest price of one shilling. (The Yellow Book had cost five.) Every issue had four sections: one on architecture (and sometimes sculpture) with illustrations, one on literature, one on the visual arts with illustrations, and one on music, with actual scores for voice and piano often included. The art ranged over the centuries, but discussions by Charles J. Holmes of Japanese prints by Hiroshige and Hokusai were especially important in directing attention to the oriental artists who influenced European modernism. Poetry by Yeats and music by Elgar also appeared in this important little magazine of the nineties.

The Modernist Journals Project would like to thank the Brown University library for allowing us to reproduce its original copies of The Dome in our digital edition.
