Edmund Dulac

I used to look at Edmund Dulac's illustrations in my copy of his Fairy Book when I was little.  Dulac was a prolific French illustrator during the 'Golden Age of Illustration' (the first quarter of the 20th century).  I just love how detailed and dreamy and romantic these are.  They just don't make kids books like they used to.
