Adding to the recent Top 10 Golden Age Illustrators is the Top 10 most Beautiful Illustrated Books. With so many books that I do not have access to or known of, it's certainly incomplete. I'm limiting the list to what I have or have seen. They represent the best among the Golden Age Illustrators and you can easily see why.

  1. East of the Sun, West of the Moon - Kay Nielsen
  2. Peter Pan in Kensington Garden - Arthur Rackham
  3. La Morte d'Arthur - Aubrey Beardsley
  4. Les Quatres Fils d'Aymon - Eugene Grasset
  5. The Ship that Sailed to Mars - Wiliam Timlin
  6. Hans Andersen's Fairy Tales - Harry Clarke
  7. Die Nibelungen - Carl Oto Czeschka
  8. Knave of Hearts - Maxfield Parrish
  9. Elves and Fairies - Ida Rentoul Outhwaite
  10. Mother Goose - W.W. Denslow

 

There are so many others that I do not know about and can be added to this list or expand upon. If you have any suggestions and access to the original material that I can borrow, please contact me.

 

Thanks you in advance,

-Minh Lai
