John Batten’s English fairy tales

batten09.jpg

More from illustrator John Dickson Batten with pages from two further collaborations with writer Joseph Jacobs, English Fairy Tales (1890), and More English Fairy Tales (1894). The latter (on the lighter paper below) are much better than the earlier set. The second book also includes The Hobyahs, a surprisingly violent story about a gang of mischievous creatures that the artist illustrates in an almost comic-book style. There’ll be more Batten tomorrow.
