Legendary Stories Of Wales – Illustrated by Honor Appleton

Description

Legendary Stories Of Wales – Illustrated by Honor Appleton

This collection, Legendary Stories of Wales is written by E. M. Wilkie, and illustrated with the stunning drawings of Honor Appleton. It contains a total of fifty-seven classic Welsh tales, ‘told through the ages’ – including those inspired by Ancient Greece and Rome, the Celtic past, King Arthur, Chaucer, Shakespeare, Dante, George Eliot, and many more. As Wilkie informs his reader… ‘many of them are well known… some are out-of-the-way tales… and a few, probably, have never been written down before.’

Honor C. Appleton (1879 – 1951), was a master of the trade. During her lifetime, she illustrated over one-hundred-and-fifty books, with her most famous works including Our Nursery Rhyme Book (1912),Charles Perrault’s Fairy Tales (1919), and the collected Stories of Hans Christian Andersen (1922). As her career progressed, she began producing bolder images for literary classics – Legendary Stories of Wales, being a prime example of this progression.

Presented alongside the text, Appleton’s enchanting creations serve to further refine and enhance E. M. Wilkie’s folkloric storytelling – making this a book to be enjoyed and appreciated, by both young and old alike.
