Inspiration Friday 1: Edmund Dulac

Lately I’ve taken an interest in 1900 European style book illustration. My interest in comic illustration has peaked once again (it comes and goes depending on the decaded) and found a lot of comic artist are inspired by the past. I’ve come across a lot of great children book illustrators and thought it would be a good idea to record down who I’ve come across.



Edmund Dulac (1882 – 1953) is a french illustrator. He’s one of those unique individuals that study law, decided that it was boring and turned towards an illustration career. The most famous artworks he is known for include Arabian Nights, Sleeping Beauty and Stories from Hans Christian Andersen.
