      The best selection of fairy tale artworks by Arthur Rackham I ve seen published None of his most famous and best works are missing like in some other collections of his illustrations that I ve seen, and there were a few I d never seen before because they were done for books that are hard to find now It was very tempting to rip some of the illustrations out and frame them for hanging on the wall, they were so pretty

      The artwork was glorious,and as a result of a few of his drawings I will be reading The Vicar of Wakefield and Rip van Winkle.

      What I love in Rackham s art is that same feeling I get from the best Pre Raphaelites Burne Jones Arthur, for instance That sense of somehow capturing the impossible level of detail with which our world enchants, but rendering with it a purer, truer realm where the beauties are clearer, the shadows darker and even the evils are grand instead of shabby Most of these illustrations originally accompanied the sort of texts you d expect Poe, Goblin Market, some especially fine renderings of the Ring [...]

      Arthur Rackham is one of those master illustrators, an artist whose style is instantly recognizable by anyone who has ever seen his works As the blurb on the back cover relates, he was a leading figure in the early twentieth century s Golden Age of Illustration and the title is well deserved His particular style, which combined clean lines in his figures with rococo backgrounds lent itself brilliantly to the various subjects he tackled He didn t really tend much toward the brighter colors but he [...]

    7. Jaimie on said:

      86 colour illustrations doesn t seem like enough to cover the broad range of Arthur Rackham s artistic career, but Menges has chosen carefully so that Rackham s major works are represented There are examples from his series of Norse myths, his work with Shakespeare, some from his books for younger children like Mother Goose, and some of his most popular publications like Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens I really enjoyed that there was no dominant work among the selections, as each book was repres [...]

      Arthur Rackham 1867 1939 made perfect story illustrations with intense detail and thin, bold lines, all with very natural, earthy colors I like to plagiarize his work and tell people it was my own design.

      Excellent pidery and a little creepy fairy tale art from World War I era English artist.
