Described by Joseph Simas as 'the Goblin Master', Arthur Rackham (1867-1939) was one of the leading artists of the golden age of illustration, first achieving popularity with his illustrations for Rip Van Winkle in 1905. Examples from that book are among the 90 pictures reproduced here, along with illustrations for works by Shakespeare, children's books, notably Peter Pan and Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, adult fiction, Wagner's Ring cycle and sihouettes from Cinderella and The Sleeping Beauty.
