Mr. Door Tree, the host of the blog, Golden Age Comic Book Stories, has posted images of Arthur Rackham's illustrations for The Ring of the Niblung by Richard Wagner.
I thought Yggdasil fans would enjoy seeing these images from The Rhinegold, Valkyrie and Twilight of the Gods, works based somewhat on the Norse sagas.
I've seen only a handful of these illustrations, so it's a real treat for art and illustration fans like me to see them all in large scans.
The influence on modern artists like Barry Windsor-Smith is readily apparent.
Enjoy!

Now I have to hunt used bookstores for that book. I love art nouveaux.

Thanks for the link.


Edit: found—only slightly over 2000 SEK. whistle

Already have one of these on the cover of this score.

He's done a lot of classic fairy tale and children's books. If you look at the Everyman Children's Library line, there are a lot of books illustrated by him.
