An interesting group of illustrations by Herbert Paus, from the 1920 edition of Tyltyl by Maurice Maeterlinck. For this work, Paus seems to be channeling several artists' styles, yet bringing his own style to it as well. For instance, I see some influence by Franklin Booth, JC Leyendecker and Charles Robinson. Yet it still rings true for Paus.
