---------- About the
Rackham (1867 â€“ 1939) was a prolific English book illustrator. He was
born in London as one of 12 children. At the age of 18, he worked as a
clerk at the Westminster Fire Office and began studying at the Lambeth
School of Art. In 1892, he quit his job and started working for The
Westminster Budget as a reporter and illustrator. His works were
included in numerous exhibitions, including one at the Louvre in Paris
in 1914. While he may be best known for his elaborate illustrations of
children's literature and fairy tales, he also illustrated books for
adult readers, including A Midsummer Night's Dream (1908) and Undine.
