Rackham's Poe
posted:
 One of the many joys of Fatherhood is passing down my books to the kids. Recently one of my daughters has been on a Poe kick. This is no family heirloom or anything but it is chock full of fantastic (literally) illustrations. I love that she's putting this stuff into her ten year old brain. This is isn't their first taste of Rackham, they have several other books illustrated by him. Originally published in 1935, this book is a reprint that was given to me as a gift back in the seventies so the reproductions are probably a faint echo of the first edition. Nevertheless, here are some scans.
