Rip Van Winkle is a short story written by the American author Washington Irving, and originally published in 1819. It is accompanied by the truly impressive illustrations of Arthur Rackham, and tells the story of a kindly and solitary character, Rip Van Winkle, who loves to tell the local children stories. Set in the years just before and after the American Revolutionary War, it is one of Irving's finest stories. Irving is also known for his work of gothic horror, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (1820). The book contains a series of dazzling colour and black-and-white illustrations - by a master of the craft; Arthur Rackham (1867-1939). One of the most celebrated painters of the British Golden Age of Illustration (which encompassed the years from 1850 until the start of the First World War), Rackham's artistry is quite simply, unparalleled. Throughout his career, he developed a unique style, combining haunting humour with dream-like romance. Presented alongside the text, his illustrations further refine and elucidate Washington Irving's enchanting narrative.
