I'm not so dumb I got a thumb But on the phone Apposable But in re-dealing on the daily road Superiority is nothing but A friendly man with monkey hands A friendly mom with monkey pawns

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

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.
