Since we’re on the Andersen’s Fairy Tales subject, I’d like to present another great illustrator of the Golden Age. William Heath Robinson and his Andersen’s Fairy Tales, fist published by Constable in 1913. Many of you are already familiar with his whimsical and humorous illustrations, if you are not, it’s time to get familiar, his “inventions” illustrations are truly remarkable.
W.H Robinson has a long and prolific career, as an author and illustrators for books, magazines, pamphlets, ads … you named it. He did it all. Many are quite rare and difficult to get a hold of. But rest assured, I will post more if I get a chance to acquire more materials from this fun loving, genius illustrator. In the mean time, enjoy.
