Happy Halloween!

October 31, 2011

Tomorrow I’ll have some pix from our own Halloween but today I wanted to show you the work of the amazing Ida Rentoul Outhwaite (cool name!) – Her most favored subject was. . . FAIRIES!! I love these Halloween-esque images.







I am SO wanting this book! ‘The Little World Of Elves and Fairies’, $8.98.



And this one:



‘The Enchanted Forest’, $12.00.

Isn’t her work just glorious?

Hopefully your day is treat filled! (I’m ready to see the candy bowl go buh-bye.)

  1. Yes, wonderful lady, we shall be friends! I can feel it in my bones! Outhwaite's work is glorious and exactly what I love the most. I adore that first illustration of the witch girl. Those books.... I am so tempted to snap them up too. Do you agree that her work is reminiscent of Arthur Rackham's? He is one of my favourites.

    Have a beautiful and frightfully spooky Hallowe'en and thank you so much for visiting my blog. Your presence makes me happy.

  3. Oh my goodness yes Stephanie, they did remind me of Arthur Rackham, who is also one of my absolute favorites (he is on my favorite illustrator list - http://www.juliasbookbag.com/p/cool-authorsillustrators.html, and I was going to mention that and then I forgot! Have a WONDERFUL holiday and go reserve that roulotte! Everytime I visit your blog it's like entering enchanted space...the pleasure is all mine! ~Melissa
