The Sirens Three -- Queen Summer
Description The Sirens Three -- Queen Summer
Walter Crane (1845 - 1915) was a renowned artist and the illustrator of numerous books, among them "The Happy Prince and Other Stories" by Oscar Wilde and Edmund Spenser's "Faerie Queene" as well as many collections of Fairy Stories. He is considered as one of the most influential and indeed prolific illustrators and creators of children's books.
This is a recording of two short books containing one poem each written and beautifully illustrated by Crane, "The Sirens Three" from 1886 (black and white illustrations in the second section of the book) and "Queen Summer" from 1891 (with coloured illustrations). (Summary by Noel Badrian)
