"(T)he illustrations of Arthur Rackham continue to cast their spell on adults and children alike. They possess qualities which make a work live: faultless draughtsmanship allied to an imagination which may be delicate or grotesque, but is always original and illuminating. Derek Hudson introduces us to the man behind the work and comments on his techniques and achievements, often illustrating his point with reproductions of Rackham's own drawings or plates. Throughout the book he mentions all of Rackham's most important work which has appeared in print and here is also a very full check list. The book is therefore invaluable to those who collect Rackham's originals and first editions."
