8. ARTHUR RACKHAM.

Arthur was an English book illustrator, his first illustrations were published in 1893in ‘to the other side ‘ by Thomas Rhodes.

He invented his own technique, which resembled photographic reproduction. First he would sketch the outline of his drawing then lightly block shapes and details, then he would add lines in pen and Indian ink, removing the pencil traces after it had dried. With colored pictures he would apply multiple washes of colour until transparent tints were created and he also went on to expand the use of silhouette cuts in his illustration work.
