Pair (Two) of Vintage Arthur Rackham Book Prints 'Venus' and 'Sleeping Princess' c1930

This lovely pair of Art Deco era book prints would be fabulous framed as a pair and so I am offering them as one item.

By the famed early 20th century book illustrator Arthur Rackham (1867-1939) they are 1930's issue prints from 2 of his most beloved children's books.

The first, entitled 'Venus and the Cat' is an illustration from Aesops Fables first jointly published in 1912 by William Heinemann of London, and Doubleday, Page and Co of New York. It is conservation matted in pastel green.

The second, entitled 'The Sleeping Princess' is from The Allies Fairy Book (see pic 4) published during WW1 in 1916 by JP Lippencott & Co, London. It is conservation matted in pale yellow.

Both prints are taken from the original pen, ink and watercolor engravings and signed in the print lower right. Both are sturdily backed and matted for protection and are in very good un-marked condition.

The prints measure 4 1/2" x 6 3/4" and with the matts are 8" x 10" which is a perfect size for framing.
