Warwick Goble – Illustrations from Stories from the Pentamerone 1911

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, The Book of Fairy Poetry and many other books.

Presented here is The Stories from the Pentamerone published by Macmillan. London, 1911. Not one of his best, but delightful nonetheless. I will add two more major works by Warwick Goble in the coming weeks.
