Arthur Rackham was a turn of the 20th century book illustrator.  Some of his more popular works include the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm, Wagner’s “The Ring”, “Gulliver’s Travels”, and “Alice in Wonderland”. 

Book illustration is a lost art.  I’m always blown away when each illustration looks like a painting that could be hanging on a museum wall.  These are so expressive and the colors somehow remind me of my childhood in Odessa (Ukraine) where memories, like photographs, take on a vintage hue.
