More About the Author

Jeff A. Menges (b.1965) was born in a small, seaside town in New Jersey. His teen years were shaped by Star Wars, sword and sorcery novels, and Heavy Metal Magazine--his fate was already sealed at this point.

A long-time contributor to the gaming industry, his illustration work continues to grace role-playing products, card games, books and magazines as well. Recent projects include compiling and editing books on legendary illustrators; Arthur Rackham, Edmund Dulac, Howard Pyle, and others. Jeff has now produced more than 20 books on Golden Age illustration and painters of the late nineteenth century.

In addition to his freelance work, Jeff has steady experience as an Art Director and Designer, and works with Dover Publications in New York. He currently lives on Long Island with his wife and two children.

I was hoping that there would be more! But the 243 there are are fantastic. Fairy Tale Scenes, Classic Art, Shadows, Shakespearian Themed pieces, and many more. A great collection.

Format: Paperback
The years 1870-1930, from which these pictures come, were not only a Golden Age of Illustration but a prime era for fantasy as well, beginning with the Victorians' fascination with folklore, nature, and the occult and going on through the work of all the great illustrators like Warwick Goble, Arthur Rackham, and H. J. Ford (just three of those represented here). From lovely sprites and fairies to homely or twisted dwarves to a trio of semicomical demons busily creating toothache, all types of creatures from "the other world" abound, some in silhouette, most in some variation of pen-and-ink. The inside back cover provides an index so you can look up your favorites or find out who produced a picture that interests you. Most of the examples are of a size that allows you to appreciate them without magnification, and all are reproduced brightly and cleanly. Those whose bookshelves already include collections by these illustrators should definitely add it to their collections, while those unfamiliar with the era will find it a good (if monochrome) introduction to the styles and names current at the time.
