The literature of George MacDonald was often enhanced with illustrations by several of the finest artists in Victorian England. George MacDonald: An Illustrated Anthology presents a wide diversity of excerpts from the novels, sermons, poems, essays and children’s tales by this beloved 19th century writer, accompanied by the beautiful original illustrations inspired by these works. Represented artists include Arthur Boyd Houghton, Arthur Hughes, Sir John Everett Millais, George John Pinwell, Frederick Sandys, William Small, and several others.
"As the result of copious research, Barbara Amell brings to her comprehensive knowledge of George MacDonald’s literary achievement her deep appreciation of the illustrative abilities of the chief artists of the Victorian period. The result is a highly delightful and instructive reading experience."
--Dr. Roland Hein, Professor Emeritus of English at Wheaton College
