The Faerie Queene
Walter Crane Illustrator

Walter Crane - The Faerie Queene

The graphic images that comprise this package are superior re-creations of borders, initials, headers, dividers and scrolls from the most famous of Walter Crane's works: the illustration of The Faerie Queene by Edmund Spenser.
Each element has been meticulously hand-drawn by AlfredoM in vector format.

Spenser’s Faerie Queene. A Poem in Six Books, with the Fragment Mutabilitie. Edited by Thomas J. Wise, Published by George Allen, 1894 -1897 in London.
The most important work in the whole long list of books illustrated by Walter Crane. It took 3 years to complete this work, originally published in parts, commenced in 1894, completed in 1896, and finished publishing in 1897. It represents one of the most impressive displays of Crane’s talents as a book illustrator.

Walter Crane - The Faerie Queene

Printed on fine hand-made paper that enhances Crane's designs, this set is a perfect blend of art, text and book design. Published one year after the Kelmscott Chaucer, Crane's work reflects his interest in Art Nouveau (Crane illustrated the first Kelmscott book).
While it is derivative and pseudo-Kelmscottian, as Muir asserts, it is nevertheless an excellent example of the British illustrated book as it anticipates the Art Nouveau at the end of the century
