(King Lear)

A friend of mine’s reading Arthur of Albion to her children at bedtime and when I picked up the book to check it out, I was so taken with Pavel Tatarnikov’s magical illustrations that I sent myself an email with a reminder to buy the book! Love how Pavel’s illustrations have layers upon layers… castles are hidden in armor, swords are citadels, hills are cities, horses are clouds… everything magically shapeshifting in and out of each other. More here if you scroll about half way down the page. Pavel’s illustrated everything from King Arthur and Shakespeare to biblical stories and classic fairytales.
