Emerald Fairy Book, Part 3

SDC10657Dorothy Furniss, illustrator (1879-1944)

Dorothy began her career in England working with her father, illustrator Harry Furniss (1854-1925). He contributed over 2,600 drawings to the famous British magazine Punch and illustrated two of Lewis Carroll’s books.
          While much of Dorothy’s work was in collaboration with her father, she found her own opportunities, such as The Emerald Fairy Book and Eve’s Adventures: a submarine fantasy in 1904. 
          The family moved to America in the early 1900s where Harry pioneered the first animated cartoon film for Thomas Edison and wrote a number of books. Dorothy continued as an illustrator and also produced several books on drawing.
Thomas Noyes-Lewis (1862-1946) was primarily known for his religious illustrations. He occasionally produced work such as this image for The Emerald Fairy Book.
