Walter Crane: Aladdin’s Picture Book

Walter Crane produced a series of small pamphlets in the 1890s based on popular fairy tales, done in large format with 6 pages of illustrations and about an equal number of pages of text. They were rather like the 19th century equivalent of comic books, in the same vein as what Howard Pyle was doing across the Atlantic at the same time with his Lady of Shalott or what Ivan Bilibin was doing in Russia with his Byliny and Skaski booklets of folktales.

Four of these stories were collected together into a bound volume titled Aladdin’s Picture Book. It includes “Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp,” “The Yellow Dwarf,” “Princess Belle-Etoile” and “The Hind in the Wood.”  One of several similar collections, all of which are very hard to find.
We’ve digitized and cleaned up all of the images at large size and high resolution and put them together into a beautiful package ready to use for your personal design projects.  The images make great screen savers or art prints or resources for many other purposes.

In addition to the samples shown on this page you can download a reduced size reference PDF of all of the images.  If you like them you can purchase the full high-resolution set in our ONLINE STORE.
