Product description

This stunning treasury features full-page plates of the finest works by the famed English artist, Arthur Rackham (1867-1939). A leading figure in the early twentieth century's Golden Age of Illustration, Rackham interpreted scenes from such diverse material as fairy tales, Wagnerian opera, and Shakespearean comedy. His memorable images, which combine whimsy, romance, and sophistication, continue to enchant children and adults alike. Magnificently reprinted from more than 25 rare early editions, these 86 illustrations were selected from hundreds of possibilities and include many plates that have not been reproduced in decades. They span Rackham's career -- from his landmark 1905 edition of "Rip Van Winkle" to masterworks such as "Undine" and "A Midsummer Night's Dream" and his final publication, "Wind in the Willows, " in 1939. Art lovers, book collectors, and anyone with an appreciation for imaginative visual storytelling will prize this marvelous treasury.
