Goble's Chaucer

Warwick Goble is one of my top most favorite fairy tale illustrators and I am delighted with the fairy tale sensibility that he brought to The Complete Poetical Works of Geoffrey Chaucer, my edition published in 1912. It is one of my favorite illustrated books ever, and I will be posting the illustrations one at a time, in order of appearance in the book. I will only be posting one every now and then, but really, it's worth the effort to collect them all.

Wow, I look forward to these. All the parts of this illo are interesting, but my eye keeps going back to that tree.
