Walter Crane’s Fairy Tale Illustrations

Many months ago I posted Dorothy Lathrop’s illustrations for The Light Princess and Marjorie Flack’s illustrations for Taktuk, an Arctic Boy, from the Junior Classics children’s literature collection that my family had on the shelf when I was growing up.

Here are Walter Crane‘s prints for the volume of fairy tales.
