I posted a load of images by Manchester (England)-born Sidney H. Sime a while back, but I thought it would be nice to have a new entry for this wonderful illustrator! Sime studied at the Liverpool School of Art and his work was featured in Pick-Me-Up, The Idler and the Pall Mall Gazette, in fact he owned The Idler for two years.

Many artists have said they were influenced by Sime’s work, including fantasy illustrator Roger Dean. H.P. Lovecraft also claimed to be a fan, but it was Sime’s work for Lord Dunsany that secured his place in fantasy history.

Read the whole of Dunsany’s The Book Of Wonder, A Chronicle Of Little Adventures At The Edge Of The World (1912) and The Sword Of Welleran, And Other Stories (1908), including Sime’s illustrations for free.
