Arthur Rackham 1867-1939

Arthur Rackham was probably best known for his dreamlike illustrations for children's books ("Rip Van Winkle", "Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens", and "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland"-to only name three), but he was an extremely talented painter who never failed to impart a certain ambience and mood in his work. Some illustrated books for adults he completed were "A Midsummer Night's Dream", "The Rhinegold and the Valkyrie", "Undine", and "Siegfried and The Twilight of the Gods". Other books he illustrated include: "Aesop's Fables", "Mother Goose", "A Christmas Carol", "Gulliver's Travels", "The Romance of King Arthur", "English Fairy Tales", "Cinderella", "The Sleeping Beauty", "Hansel and Gretel", "Irish Fairy Tales", "A Fairy Book", "The Allies Fairy Book", "Comus", "A Wonder Book", "The Tempest", "The Vicar of Wakefield", "The Chimes", "The Night Before Christmas", "The Compleat Angler", "The Arthur Rackham Fairy Book", "Tales of Mystery and Imagination", "The King of the Golden River", "Goblin Market", "The Pied Piper", "Peer Gynt", and "The Wind in the Willows". *Note: I cannot place a "Title" under every illustration because some are exactly illustrations, untitled. (If anyone knows the correct titles for any of these please e-mail me?)
