Words from the achiever
“The first book that made an impression on me when I was very young was sent by my Aunt Ethel, my mother’s sister from England. It was published in 1915 for the benefit of the Red Cross at the First World War, and it was called Edmund Dulac’s Picture Book. It was a wonder, full of the most beautiful illustrations by Edmund Dulac and also Arthur Rackham who was one of the other celebrated illustrators of the day. It was a book of fairy stories. The Princess and the Pea was in it. I can remember that, and Arabian Nights, that was in it. An exquisite book, and I have it to this day.”
