Byam Shaw’s Decameron

illo1Byam Shaw was a great English illustrator of the Victorian period. Stylistically he inherited many of the characteristics of the Pre-Raphaelite and Arts and Crafts artists of the earlier 19th century, putting him in the same category with other late-Victorian artists like Eleanor Fortescue Brickdale and William Russell Flint.

Shaws black and white illustrations are complex and have lots of detail. They are realistic while often dealing with legendary or mythical themes.

This mini-collection is our second set of Shaw illustrations. They are taken from his illustrated edition of Boccacio’s Decameron which features classic renaissance period stories of adventure and romance.

There are 20 illustrations and 4 decorative borders in this collection. You can see samples of all the illustrations below. Just click on an image to see a large preview.

This mini-package is just $12 and can be ordered from our ONLINE STORE

We also have another collection of Byam Shaw illustrations for Legendary Ballads.
