Dulac, Edmund

Signed limited edition prints, artists proofs and rare prints by Edmund Dulac, including original illustrations of Hans Christian Andersen's Fairy Tales, The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, and Arabian Nights. 

At the age of twenty-two, Dulac was commissioned for the quintessentially English task of illustrating Jane Eyre. Favouring the use of water-colours for much of his work, Dulac became, and remains, one of the most memorable and recognisable illustrators of the early twentieth century. During a particularly prolific time for British illustrated books, Dulac’s career flourished and his celebrity propelled him into the life-long friendships of W. B. Yeats, Ezra Pound and Sir Thomas Beecham, with whom he collaborated on numerous theatrical projects.

By the second World War, Dulac has become the leading authority on postage stamp design, and is responsible for the French ‘Victory Stamp’ circulated after the Allies victory. In later life, he returned to illustrating children’s books and did so until his death at the age of seventy.
