About the Author

A contemporary of Remington and Rackham, Warwick Goble produced lovely watercolor paintings that perfectly illustrated fairy tale subjects. Specializing in Japanese and Indian themes, he became famous for illustrating both magazines and books, including H. G. Wells's The War of the Worlds.

This book is great if you want a vague introduction to the artwork of Warwick Goble, one of the illustrators of the Golden Age of book illustration. I say vague because, like so many Dover reprints of color plates, the colors are rather more greenish or grayish than the originals. I have some other reproductions of Goble pictures in other, more expensive collections of pictures and the colors are off. Still, this could motivate you to find some of your favorite Goble pictures in more expensive, and therefore higher quality, productions.

I loved this collection of beautiful Goble illustrations! It gives you a nice selection of some of his artwork from several different books. I only wish that it included even more pictures and possibly larger prints. I might just buy the specific books of some of my favorites.. Other than that, I really enjoy having my own copy to look through!

...you'll probably also enjoy the work of his contemporary, Warwick Goble. Like Rackham, Goble specializes in fantasy and illuminates it through an ink-and-color technique that allows him to portray detail meticulously (look at the ewer and table in Plate 38, or the patterns of the three rats' kimonos in Plate 20). In this book are pictures illustrating stories from Italy, India, Japan, England, and all points between, full of beauty, magic, and rich color. You'll probably find yourself wanting to acquire copies of the original books, if only because the pictures hook your interest and make you want to read the stories and find out what leads up to the scenes Goble shows and what happens afterward. This is definitely a book that will please lovers of fantasy and of Golden Age illustration.

Goble's Fairy Tale Illustrations is a beautiful collection of art that otherwise can only be found in books of fairy tales that are generally speaking out of print. The late nineteenth century and early twentieth century was a great period for children's book illustrations and Goble is one of the less-well known artists (and deserves to be known better). This is a great gift for a child who has a love of art and of classic fairytales. It is also a great gift for adults.

Good collection. Representative of some of the great artists that have braved this subject. Children of all ages are very discerning critics.
