goble-japanese10

Warwick Goble (1862 – 1943) was an illustrator of children’s books. He specialized in Japanese and Indian themes.

In 1909, he became resident gift book illustrator for MacMillan and produced illustrations for The Water Babies, Green Willow, and Other Japanese Fairy Tales, The Complete Poetical Works of Geoffrey Chaucer, Stories from the Pentamerone, Folk Tales of Bengal, The Fairy Book, and The Book of Fairy Poetry.

Presented here is one of  Warwick Goble’s most elaborate and loved work, Japanese Fairy Tales, published in 1909 by MacMillan, London. In my opinion, this book is his best work where he maintained an overall consistency and originality that he lacks in his later works. One of the great Golden Age illustrator. Enjoy these amazing illustrations.
