One of England's Greatest Illustrators
You can buy the book of Wagner's The Ring (where the last 2 come from) for real cheap like 12 bucks or something off of Dover Publications..
Hey Main Loop,
Just had to post and express my agreement with your sentiments concerning Rackham! I love that guy's stuff. Incredible!
Check out these guys too when you get a chance. Joseph Clement Coll and Franklin Booth, both of whom were around in the early 1900's. Bernie Wrightson actually took his inspiration for his Frankenstein illustrations from Mr. Booth. Amazing stuff:
"I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve."
way ahead of ya.. ive known about those guys for like a half a year now.. I got JC Coll's book on order hey, you should make a thread here about those guys...
Rackham's stuff is absolutely leet. There is (uh, was) a swedish illustrator, John Bauer, that did slightly similar stuff. Not quite Rachham's level tho. That style was quite popular back then.
Also, if bored, check out Carl Larsson, another dead swedish artist. Illustrative painting style. Pretty mainstream.
Jamen jag tror att han skäms, och har gömt sig. Vårt universum det är en av dom otaliga spermasatser som Herren i sin självhärliga ensamhet har runkat fram för å besudla intet.
