In 1909, renowned English artist Arthur Rackham illustrated W. L. Courtney’s translation of Undine. The results are breathtaking, if unsurprising: Rackham was a master of his craft. The book contains 15 full color plates, and I’ve picked a few of my favorite to showcase here.
Here is a miniature re-print of Lewis Carroll's Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland published by Plum Park Press. This is a 2011 re-print of the 1907 Heinemann edition, which featured intoxicating illustrations by Arthur Rackham.
