I found some Arthur Rackham illustrations from Lamb’s Tales of Shakespeare to celebrate the bard’s birthday on 23rd April.
A very special person told me how much she’d enjoyed re-acquainting with Arthur Rackham, and I did too.
So, here are some more Rackham illustrations; hope you enjoy them.
The Frog Prince
British Ballads – Hind Horn
I hadn’t ever come across the Grimm Brothers’ fairy tale, Allerleirauh, but found it here. It’s quite shocking and I doubt it would be included in a fairy tale collection any more.
The Lady and the Lion
There are lots more Arthur Rackham illustrations on the Wikicommons website if you follow this link.
Thanks for visiting my blog today.
