Walter Crane (1845-1915) was an English artist, illustrator, and wood-engraver. He was very prolific, especially in the realm of children’s toy books, though he also illustrated novels such as Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves and Don Quixote of the Mancha.
In this first volume of Walter’s work, all of the images come from Edmund Spenser’s epic poem, The Faerie Queene. The art style is woodcut, so larger black areas, though that means you can worry less about coloring outside the line. Filled with knights (men and women), at least one monster and a dragon, a queen, and a herald, if fantasy art is your thing, you’ll find something fun to color here.
This PDF version of The Art of Walter Crane, Vol. 1, contains the same number of illustrations as the print version. You will find all of the pages represented in the Product Gallery. There are 20 full page (8.5″ x 11″) illustrations, and 20, 4” x 6” images as postcard-sized close-ups of the preceding artwork.
