edmund dulac! genius of delicacy, cornerstone of my childhood. i have a copy of a book called "F was a Fanciful Frog" for which he did all of the illustrations. it is, beyond a doubt, one of my all-time favorites. i think that illustration ranks in my top 3 favorite art forms (the other two being photography & film). and i love mermaids.
4 more days in india. any requests?
