Both Lisbeth Zwerger and Tony DiTerlizzi, two of my all-time favorite illustrators, cite Arthur Rackham as an inspiration. His influence is obvious. He's a contemporary of Winsor McCay, also on this list. I think Rackham is one of the original masters of fairytale illustration. Nuff said.
I've only just started this book and am about 2 chapters in. I'm loving his politics and his perspective on the convergence of "old world" and "new world" foods, language, and culture.
