Ida Rentoul Outhwaite – The Enchanted Forest 1921


Ida Rentoul Outhwaite,  (9 June 1888 – 25 June 1960), was an Australian illustrator of children’s books. Her work mostly depicted fairies.

I’m pleased to present one of Ida Rentoul Outhwaite’s most beautiful illustrated book. The Enchanted Forest, first published in 1921 by A.C. Black. With 31 illustrations, 16 tipped-in plates and 15 B/W illustrations. Outhwaite is Australia’s most famous children’s book illustrator and is among the best Golden Age woman illustrators. You can easily see why in the wonderful B/W illustrations and her delicate watercolors of the little fairies. Cheer !
