Sidney Sime

Sidney Sime - They're little girls and boys!
[ via ECTOPLASMOSIS] – Sidney Sime is best known for illustrating Lord Dunsany’s work, and was much admired by H.P. Lovecraft; here are some great images of his artwork, mostly for Dunsany stories (note the Beardsley influence). The picture above is from an out of copyright book called Fancy Free, available online at archive.org thanks to Microsoft’s scanning project and the University of California libraries.

    Ach, the place I go dreaming is cool, but then I wake up in this silly place.
