woodroffe16At the dawn of the 20th century there was a real boom in the market for high end books. This created demand for really exceptional book illustrators and many traditionally trained artists brought their skills to publishers and were very well paid for their work. New printing techniques made it possible to publish very high quality editions of classic works of literature and reproduce illustrations brilliantly in full color. The most famous artist to emerge in this period was Arthur Rackham, but he was joined by many others like William Russell Flint, Eleanor Brickdale and Frank Brangwyn, some of whom were incredibly talented in their own right. One standout among these illustators was Paul Woodroffe, and English artist who also worked in stained glass. He started out illustrating fairy tales and moved on to works on Roman History and was particularly known for his illustrations of Shakespeare. One of his most impressive works was his illustrated edition of the "The Tempest." It features 20 striking illustrations originally printed on tipped in plates. It's a great example of Woodroffe at the height of his talents before he turned mostly to working in stained glass late in his career. We have collected Woodroffe's illustrations to "The Tempest" and are making them available as a mini-package of high-resolution digital reproductions licensed for you to use in your design projects. The whole set is only $12 and can be purchased in our online store and downloaded immediately.
