Arthur Rackham (introduced by Joseph Simas): Masterpieces of Art
This exquisite volume is essential for fans of the Golden Age of Illustration, offering a generous retrospective on one of the period's key players: Arthur Rackham. It features over seventy high-quality plates of his distinctive watercolours, including both his playful interpretations and Gothic reimaginings of children's classics. It does not eschew his lesser-known and highly interesting silhouette illustration, and an introductory essay by Joseph Simas sheds new light on his work and life. Arthur Rackham has long been a favourite here at Tales for Tadpoles, and this hardback book is a very exciting addition.
