Golden Age Illustrators

I'd like to call your attention to a website I found the other day, featuring amazing galleries of illustrations from the biggest names of the Golden Age of illustrators. I've been searching through the galleries for days now, and still finding new amazing treasures.

Ironically, considering the recent conversation about today's illustrators borrowing from the past, I found illustrations in the albums that are highly reminiscent of art by Kinuko Craft and Brian Froud both. These artists really must know their classic illustrators well!

In the albums too are collections of illustrations from books by William Morris and Christina Rossetti.
