Harry Clarke, Illustrator

I found these amazing gift cards with the illustrations of Harry Clarke from a book of Hans Christian Anderson Fairytales from 1916. The delicate line work and bold lush colors are sumptuous and evocative. I want to crawl inside that magical world and float around with the elves in the moonlight. I love how everything in The Elf Hill is a sea of cool blues and greens dashed with a brillant shock of orange-red hair and socks. So fun! Enjoy these delights from the past.
