Awesome picture book illustrators #5: Arthur Rackham

Arthur Rackham, like Maxfield Parrish, still enjoys a following today. His legend extends beyond the world of illustrated books and there are several art books dedicated to his work currently in print. It’s difficult to point out works with which he is specifically associated, largely because he mostly provided illustrations for new editions of long-established works like Aesop’s Fables, Alice in Wonderland, Wind in the Willows, etc.  The one original work of some fame that he illustrated is Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens, which is largely overshadowed by its sequel, Peter and Wendy (aka Peter Pan).  Anyway, read ’em and weep!
