Fairytale Creatures

Arthur Rackham is one of my favorite children's books illustrators. His art is full of wonder and inspiration. It opens up before the reader a world of magic and whimsy.

Little People's Market - Arthur Rackham's Book of Pictures, 1917
I have a giclee of this illustration hanging over my couch. I also purchased an original first edition book illustration on e-bay, but decided against framing it since the miniature creatures get quite lost on the wall.
