Jared Farmer’s Mormon Image Collections

By September 1, 2013

Jared Farmer has made available, for free download, two self-published digital collections of Mormon-related images. This is not really a review—it’s an endorsement.  

Mormons in the Media, 1830-2012 has 500+ illustrations with some explanatory text. JJohnson reviewed it for JI last August. The edition available for download now is not marked as a “2nd edition” (as of June, when I last checked) but it has some minor, silent corrections.

The Image of Mormons: A Sourcebook for Teachers and Students has 700+ illustrations but almost no explanatory text.

Hie thee to a web server and download, forthwith.

  1. I just finished flipping (is there a word to do this digitally?) through Mormons in the Media. It’ll make a great visual resource. Thanks Jared for making it available to the public for free!
