When I am in London, I like to visit the National Portrait Gallery. The above is a photo of a book I found a few years ago in the shop there. This is only one of the many books I have paused to look at more closely as I proceed with the unpacking. Today I was searching this book to find if there was anything there about Arthur Rackham. No, there wasn’t anything so I concluded that he was primarily an illustrator – a very famous one in the world of children’s literature. The reason I was looking for information about him was that when I was at Ophelia’s Books in Fremont the other day I purchased one of his illustrations. It is from Sleeping Beauty and it is a lovely pen and wash print. I am delighted with it. It will be part of my collection of pieces of art with a textile theme.
