An Edmund Dulac Treasury || ed Jeff A Menges

Edmund Dulac was a book illustrator whose work immediately sums up the era of Art Nouveau. Sumptuous, dramatic and often amusing, his work graced the pages of classics like the Arabian Nights and the tales of Hans Christian Andersen in the early years of the twentieth century.

This selection of 116 colour plates has a short introduction and no other commentary, but is a joy to look at. The reproduction is maybe a little dark in places but, frankly, for the price, it would be unfair to complain.
