A nice survey of some of Rackham's fairytale illustrations that enable the reader to appreciate the different techniques and styles he employed over the course of his career. Some of the tales depicted are a bit more obscure and could have benefitted from more descriptive captions.
I cant figure out how to get into the book from my phone
An excellent collection of illustrations by Arthur Rackham, inspired by various Western fairy tales.
Both Lisbeth Zwerger and Tony DiTerlizzi, two of my all-time favorite illustrators, cite Arthur Rackham as an inspiration. His influence is obvious. He's a contemporary of Winsor McCay, also on this list. I think Rackham is one of the original masters of fairytale illustration. Nuff said.
Another case of, "I was going to put the collection down, but this book ate me." That's a good thing.
A lovely collection of full plate color illustrations. Includes many tales that are not well known -- and not all from the Brothers Grimm, either.
Love Arthur Rackham...
