Edmund Dulac was one of THE classic illustrators of the Golden Age of illustration. Over time his style evolved to a simpler, more antiquarian effect. But even into the mid-century when other artists' styles had taken divergent paths, Dulac's was distinct with an aura of the Golden Age.
This little jewel of an edition was commissioned by The Limited Editions Club for The George Macy Companies and was the last of Dulac's books published prior to his death in 1953.

My name is Thom Buchanan.
I'm an artist and photographer.
People are my favorite subjects to portray in art and photos. My wife (and studio partner) has called that my 'people skills', as I've been passionately creating portrait studies for many years.
I refer to myself as a pictorialist, a combination of image-making and journalist. Images are my life.
