"The Swan's Stories" By Hans Christian Andersen, Illustrated By Chris Riddell (published by Walker Books Ltd, London 1997) Part 3

Top quality illustrations by British illustrator Chris Riddell (b. 1962). Impeccable draughtsmanship and humour - it's a delight flicking through this book as there are so many pictures in almost every page. The characters, the fine details and the styling is reminiscent of books by Arthur Rackham (1867-1938) and Walter Crane (1845-1915) about a hundred years ago, when book illustration was at its best. The artist's website with many more pictures and a list of his other books is: http://www.chrisriddell.co.uk/
