Some of the finest illustrators from the golden age of children's book illustration, are collected here in this beautiful and fascinating gallery dedicated to artwork depicting classic fairy stories and folk tales.
From rare early editions of such popular tales as "Sleeping Beauty," "Cinderella," and "The Snow Queen", this collection includes more than 180 elegant images - most in full colour, but also accompanied by dramatic black and white illustration and engraving.
The greatest exponents of the art, Arthur Rackham, Gustave Doré, Edmund Dulac, Kay Nielsen, Warwick Goble, Walter Crane, and Heath Robinson all have chapters, as do Mabel Lucie Atwell, Duncan Carse, Harry Clarke, Herbert Cole, Charles Folkard and many lesser known artists - 23 artists are explored.
