Illustrating Thursdays: Edmund Dulac

Edmund Dulac was a French illustrator living from 1882-1953. He illustrated classic myths, fairy tales, and other types of literature (he was commissioned to illustrate Jane Eyre at age 22). He also designed stamps and bank notes during WWII.

His works are timeless and enchanting and his use of color is just breathtaking. You can order calendars and cards with his work and view more of his illustrations here.
