A type of small picture made from brightly coloured woven silk, produced during the late 19th century.

Named after Thomas Stevens (1828–88), English weaver, whose firm made them.

[Okay, I did try making my own Stevengraph illustration. Somehow, it did not do the idea justice.]


Inkscape is a powerful illustration tool. I enjoy using it every day to do the images to back up each day’s word. Inkscape in the hands of a real pro probably could do a creditable job of showing a Stevengraph. In my hands, well, lets’s get real. Thank you for your daily tolerance.
