This unique visual collection comprises magazine illustrations, book covers, photographs, political cartoons, movie posters, film stills, sheet music, broadsides, advertisements, postcards, websites, and other ephemera. Mormons in the Media considers both outside views of Mormons—including historic anti-Mormon propaganda—and media images promulgated by Latter-day Saints themselves. This topical reference work also features a preface, a fact sheet, a list of suggested readings, and bibliographic citations.
Your curator is Jared Farmer, professor of history and prize-winning author of On Zion's Mount: Mormons, Indians, and the American Landscape (Harvard, 2008).
