Rackham and Crane and Beardsley oh my

Dearest B,

In prepping for another letter, I rediscovered 19th century illustrators Arthur Rackham (1867-1939), Walter Crane (1845-1915), and Aubrey Beardsley (1872-1898).   It’s been dreadfully difficult selecting works to share, the output is exceptional and immense.  I do hope you enjoy the preview.

Much love,


Arthur Rackham
