Описание: This enchanting gallery transports viewers to a fairy tale world -- an ageless fantasy realm inhabited by characters from favorite folktales and depicted by renowned artists. Lovingly reproduced from rare early editions, more than 180 illustrations portray scenes from stories by the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Andersen, and other sources, including ancient Celtic and Norse legends. Breathtaking art, dating from 1882 to 1923, captures the genius of 23 illustrators, including Arthur Rackham, Gustave Dor , Edmund Dulac, Kay Nielsen, Warwick Goble, and Walter Crane. The imaginative interpretations include vignettes from "Sleeping Beauty," "Cinderella," "Rumpelstiltskin," "Puss in Boots," "The Snow Queen," and scores of other familiar and lesser-known tales. The illustrations, many of which are brilliantly colored, full-page images, appear with a caption that includes the artist's name, the story from which it's drawn, and a descriptive line or direct quotation from the tale. Book lovers of all ages will rejoice in this treasury and its happy marriage of fine art and fairy tales.
Описание: Rooted in tales both ancient and modern, these vibrant images date from the early twentieth century's Golden Age of Illustration. Edmund Dulac, a prominent artist of the period, created them for books published between 1905 and 1928. Their moods range from the shadowy foreboding of Jane Eyre to the venturesome spirits of Treasure Island and the lighthearted fantasies of A Fairy Garland. Other featured titles include Shakespeare's The Tempest, The Arabian Nights, The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, and the fairy tales of Hans Christian Andersen. French-born Edmund Dulac arrived in London in 1904, when new advances in the printing process kindled a rage for picture books. Dulac's imaginative powers and technical skills assured the popularity of his book illustrations, many of which were sold separately as fine art paintings. After World War I, when the appetite for deluxe volumes waned, the artist turned his talents in many new directions, including portraiture, theatrical costume and set design, newspaper caricature, and stamp design. This retrospective of his early works is the only such anthology available, offering a singular tribute to an artist from a halcyon era of art inspired by literature.
Описание: The finest collection of art by one of the greatest English book illustrators. A stunning full-colour treasury of the finest illustrations by the famed English artist. Rackham's subjects ranged from fairy tales and children's stories to Wagner's operas. This superbly printed work includes more than 80 full-page plates that span his entire artistic output. The illustrations in this handsome volume have been beautifully reproduced directly from rare original editions. Dover Original.

Stained glass craftspeople looking for authentic Victorian- and Edwardian-era designs will find them in this rich collection by period stained glass expert Hywel G. Harris. Prompted by a desire to preserve authentic specimens of domestic stained glass designs -- rapidly disappearing in postwar England because of destruction, adulteration, and neglect -- the author photographed a multitude of windows, transoms, sidelights, and other stained glass elements in houses constructed between 1890 and 1920. The designs in this practical compendium have been directly rendered from those photographs and presented in a wide range of sizes and shapes. Included are lovely floral and foliate motifs, a remarkable array of geometrics, transitional designs showing the influence of Art Nouveau and more. Of immense value to stained glass workers, this impressive, easily affordable sourcebooks will also function as an inspiration for graphic artists and a useful reference for architectural historians.
Susan Gaber's garden is a black-and-white Eden of lush flower design -- 100 graceful, botanically accurate garden flowers rendered for artists and anyone who admires or needs floral designs and motifs: needleworkers, craftsmen of all sorts, designers.

Ms. Gaber has drawn these flowers with sinuously weaving leaves and stems, flowing and swaying as in a breeze on the page, in compositions suitable for design purposes: some of the flowers appear several times, and many of the drawings form frames, repeating borders, and motifs. The flowers, many full-page, include African Violet, Begonia, Orchid Cactus, Columbine, Daffodil, Dogwood, Iris, Peony, Snapdragon, Tobacco, and much more.
