Little Jewel

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.

Edmund Dulac — The Marriage of Cupid and Psyche — 1951

Hi Thom,
These are beautiful in composition and design; less complex than many of Dulac's illustrations, but also reminiscent.
