Summary

Acclaimed by The Times of London as "one of the most charming books ever written," J. M. Barrie's fantasy was published in 1906 with illustrations by the great Arthur Rackham. This meticulous re-creation of that rare and valuable volume features all of the original artwork that illuminated the text: 50 color plates as well as black-and-white tailpieces, headpieces, and more. Readers of all ages will delight in following the exuberant child through Kensington Gardens, where fairies dance to the music of his panpipes and teach him to fly.

Author Biography

Scottish author and novelist Sir James Matthew Barrie (1860–1937) is best remembered as the creator of Peter Pan. Although he wrote several other books and plays that were extremely popular in their day, Barrie's lasting fame rests upon the stories inspired by a family of boys he befriended during an outing in London's Kensington Gardens.
A leading figure in the early 20th century's Golden Age of Illustration, English artist Arthur Rackham (1867–1939) brought countless stories and fairy tales to life through his vivid imagination and eye for telling details. Rackham interpreted scenes from fairy tales, Wagnerian opera, and Shakespearean comedy. His memorable images, which combine whimsy, romance, and sophistication, continue to enchant children and adults alike.
