Portraits in print

10 episodes, 1960, WHYY (Philadelphia)

From WNET:

"Each program presents the life of a famous author as it was reflected in his own writing. A series of drawings, etchings, lithographs, and photographs of the times and places mentioned recreates the times and physical appearance of each writer. A narrator describes these times and places, often from the authors’ works. In addition, actors on camera read well-known passages. The programs were prepared in cooperation with the Free Library of Philadelphia."
