From the cover: A fascinating insight into the personality, career and work of one of the worlds most collectable illustrators. Filled with enchanting pictures and authoritative text In this fascinating book, art historian James Hamilton examines the work and life of the illustrator Arthur Rackham. Rackhams illustrations for works such as Rip Van Winkle, Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens, Alice in Wonderland and A Midsummer Nights Dream have attained the classic status of the writings themselves indeed, in some cases they have become synonymous with them.
Rackham himself, however, has previously remained a shadowy figure. As well as featuring exquisite illustrations and sketches, extracts from Rackhams correspondence and insightful commentary from James Hamilton shed new light on this much collected illustrator.
