Arthur Rackham's Fantastical World!

I thought I would share an all time favourite illustrator of mine with you today, Arthur Rackham. Through the use of pen and ink, he magically brings the fantasy of children's literature to life. I love the dreamlike imagery and often eerie woodland scenes he captures with fantastic precision. Below are a selection of my favourite illustrations from some very famous enchanting stories.
