HARRY CLARKE An Imaginative Genius in Illustration and Stained-glass Arts

Availability: In stock

$39.95
Highly Recommended. By Hiroshi Unno. Packed with unusual and some never before collected pieces, a perfect introduction or companion to previous Clarke collections. Born in Dublin in 1889, he studied stained-glass until he moved to London in 1913 to work as a book illustrator. His first printed work was 40 illustrations for Hans Christian Andersen's Fairy Tales. His next was Edgar Allan Poe's Tales of Mystery and Imagination--which made him famous. Despite his short life (only 42 years), he left an expansive legacy of illustration and stained-glass artwork.

Packed with unusual and some never before collected pieces, a perfect introduction or companion to previous Clarke collections. Born in Dublin in 1889, he studied stained-glass until he moved to London in 1913 to work as a book illustrator. His first printed work was 40 illustrations for Hans Christian Andersen's Fairy Tales. His next was Edgar Allan Poe's Tales of Mystery and Imagination--which made him famous. Despite his short life (only 42 years), he left an expansive legacy of illustration and stained-glass artwork.

As the one-and-only comprehensive collection of Harry Clarke's complete works, this book showcases them with beautiful printing and detailed bilingual explanations. It is a must-have book, to be treasured by fans of The Golden Age Of Illustration, and illustration students alike. It includes a great deal of his printed work, including rare magazine appearances. But also here is one of the best-ever collections of his rarely seen stained glass work, which carries his fantasies of angels and demons and the bizarre to new levels.
