Edmund Dulac: Golden Age Illustrator Extraordinaire
on 11 November 2004
Edmund Dulac, along with Arthur Rackham and Walter Crane, is one of my favorite illustrators of all time, so it is hard to be anything but thrilled with this new collection of 55 reproductions of his work. Numerous of his illustrations for "The Sleeping Beauty," "Cinderella," "The Real Princess," "The Snow Queen," and other classic fairy tales are represented. The illustrations are reproduced on high quality paper. Almost every image is at least 5x7 or 6x8 inches in size and suitable for framing. While I don't usually recommend deconstructing books for their illustrations, this book is well-suited for the purpose and preferable to taking apart an older book for its plates. No fairy tale texts are presented, just the illustrations with their titles and sources. If you are an Edmund Dulac fan, buy one copy to take apart for framing and another one to keep on your bookshelf.
