Gah! It’s been ages since I put together an artist spotlight. Today, I decided to showcase Warwick Goble. I’ve seen plenty of his pictures, especially around Pinterest, but didn’t get curious about the man himself until a few days ago. Here are the stats…
Born: November 22, 1862 in Dalton, north London.
Studied: At the City of London School and Westminster School of Art.
Illustrated: Children’s books with titles like The Book of Fairy Poetry and Tod of the Fens. You can’t get much better than that.
Known for: An interest in Indian and Japanese fairy tales.
Died: January 22, 1943 in Surrey, England.
…And here are the pictures. Enjoy!
