1931 The Compleat Angler
What Our Customers Say...
With a frontispiece, and eleven plates by Arthur Rackham.
Collated, complete. During the "Golden Age" of British book illustration Rackham was one of its leading artists.
Many of the works he illustrated were published in a De Luxe limited edition in addition to a smaller trade edition. This is a trade edition of Rackham's work, which has been beautifully rebound.
Stylistically, Rackham"s illustrations reflected pen and India ink drawings. He used expressive line paired with a subtle use of watercolour to create his beautiful images.
