Arthur Rackham was an influential artist and illustrator, whose works during the early 20th century are very gothic and evocative of classical European mythology and folklore. His art was immaculately detailed and was both eerie and beautiful. He typically illustrated children's literature and books of Norse mythology, but he also illustrated an edition of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. Though Rackham died in 1939, his artwork is still highly collectible and inspires legions of artists and illustrators today.
Here is a list of books that he illustrated:
Rhinegold and the Valkyrie The Ring of the Nibelung Twilight of the Gods Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens A Midsummer Night's Dream Alice's Adventures in Wonderland Gulliver's Travels The Legend of Sleepy Hollow The Wind in the Willows Mother Goose's Nursery Rhymes Undine Cinderella Sleeping Beauty
