Walter Crane's Pan Pipes

Shipping Weight: 0.00 pounds
For years we've been adding to what has become an outstanding library of illustrated books by Arts and Crafts era designer Walter Crane, and all that work has come to fruition with the release of selected Walter Crane material in outstanding packages customized for contemporary designers who want to incorporate his unique aesthetic into their work. We started with our collection of Crane's The Baby's Aesop and followed with The Baby's Opera, and now we're going to an even higher level with one of his most ambitious illutrated works, Pan Pipes. Pan Pipes is a collection of popular folk songs of the late 19th century, including many which are still well known today like "Barbara Allen," "Greensleeves" and "Drink to Me Only With Thine Eyes," all beautifuly illustrated and decorated.
Like the The Baby's Opera, Pan Pipes includes the complete words and music to more than 30 songs, but they are songs for adults rather than children with beautiful period illustrations and done in a larger format which leaves room for some really outstanding decoration and calligraphy. It is arguably Crane's most impressive work.
Our presentation of the book follows the model of our other recent Walter Crane package. It includes a complete 60-page print-quality PDF facsimile of the book, plus high-resolution graphics of every page and illustration including the covers. In addition there are emblems, borders, decorative elements and other resources which we have taken from the book and cleaned up and made ready to use for other purposes. All of this comes with a license allowing you to incorporate the material in your own designs and creations.
The Pan Pipes package is only $39 and you can order online and download the package immediately -- but be warned, it's a very large download if you don't have high-speed internet. To see a complete slideshow preview of the book in video format click on the video link at the head of this article. The video doesn't include the frames and graphics, but some samples can be seen here.
We're going to be following this package with other Crane packages, including a similar treatment of The Baby's Bouquet which was a companion piece to The Baby's Own Aesop and The Baby's Opera. We also have a collection of fonts based on Crane lettering in development, like our recently released Crane Gothic and Walter Crane fonts and plan to release more Crane fonts in the future.
Anyone who purchases this or any of our other Crane packages will receive a substantial discount on our complete Walter Crane fonts and art package when it is eventually released.
