The fairy tale illustrations of Harry Clarke evoke more than just happy endings. Clarke’s use of design creates beautiful and fashionable characters through texture, volume, and intricate details that display their grandeur and wealth. Clarke references eighteenth century silhouettes with never ending capes and incredibly voluminous skirts. This gives the characters a feeling of a tangible time period, but their feeling of lux makes them feel out of this world. As we now are in a culture that uses digital imaging to create modern children stories, these art nouveau illustrations show how illustrators used their artistic senses to create other worlds.
