This 150th birthday celebration of Arthur Rackham, including a concert and panels, is led by V.H. Leslie.
Victoria’s wonderful novella, “Bodies of Water”, has been nominated for a British Fantasy Award.
19 September 2017 marks the 150th anniversary of Arthur Rackham’s birth. Rackham (1867- 1939) was one of the leading illustrators in Britain’s ‘Golden Age’ of book illustration, and his works are still hugely popular today. He is linked to Bateman’s, Rudyard Kipling’s home in Burwash, East Sussex, through his illustrations of Puck of Pook’s Hill, a tale Kipling based on the house and gardens, and to Sussex in general through a number of locations. I am very excited to be involved in a series of events run by the Sussex Centre for Folklore, Fairy Tales and Fantasy and the University of Chichester.
