Beautiful illustrations featuring Victorian fairies and angels, princesses and children, fairy tales and fables, nursery rhymes and garden fantasies...even a coloring book with pages to print & color yourself! These are really lovely.
Walter Crane, Victorian Era designer and illustrator, was one of the most popular Victorian illustrators of children's books. He, along with Randolph Caldecott and Kate Greenaway, are considered the strongest contributors to the nursery motif that developed in the 19th century. Walter Crane also illustrated books for William Morris, with whom he developed a close friendship. Walter Crane's exquisite illustrations, reflecting the influence of the Pre-Raphaelites and sensuous Art Nouveau, continue to delight. His artistic trademarks of strong clear lines, bright colors, and flatness of form are often recognized even by those unfamiliar with this remarkable artist. Included in this broad collection of complete books are examples of his illustration work for both children and adults. Enjoy these works from the Golden Age of Illustration!
