Edmund Dulac

Edmund Dulac (1882.1953) was the other fairytale illustrator of the Golden Age. (The other one being Arthur Rackham. There are no others like these two.)

The beauty of his lines leaves me speechless, and the soft colors, light and shadows, experimenting with the art traditions of the fairytale culture... like the yellow sky of Princess Badoura... and the details, again. The whole picture is filled with details, background is decorated with rich ornaments, or simple texture or color...

His illustration makes me sated with bliss...
