The Fantastic Line Art of Arthur Rackham
Arthur Rackham is widely regarded as one of the leading illustrators from the golden age of British book illustration, which encompassed the years from 1890 until the end of World War I. The acclaim for the artist's wealth of color illustrations has overshadowed the merit of his first-rate ink work, a genre richly deserving of individual attention. This original volume, the first available collection of Rackham's line art, features images from throughout his career, including illustrations for Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens, A Midsummer Night's Dream, and some rare periodical work. In addition, this compilation presents two seldom-seen magazine features on the artist: "Arthur Rackham: A Painter of Fantasies," a 1914 article from St. Nicholas Magazine; and "Arthur Rackham: The Wizard at Home," a 1905 article from The International Studio. The articles, not reprinted in over a century, contain pictures of Rackham's studio and residence as well as some direct commentary from the artist. Together with scores of strange and wonderful illustrations, they provide fresh insights into the work of the artist known as The Beloved Enchanter.
