The Enchanted Forest (1921)

 

Illustrated by Ida Rentoul Outhwaite

 

 

 

The Enchanted Forest is a collaboration between Outhwaite and her husband, Grenbry -

a man whose business acumen may have contributed significantly to his wife's success. For

The Enchanted Forest, for example, Grenbry is known to have subsidised the printing costs

with his own contribution of 400 to ensure high quality reproduction of his wife's

illustration. In addition, he ensured that the royalties from this title were consigned to the

Red Cross - a decision that ensured Vice-Regal patronage.

Cover to ''The Enchanted Forest'' (1921), illustrated by Ida Rentoul Outhwaite

 

Above, we show a copy of

The Enchanted Forest (1921)

Contemporary critiques from the British Weekly and the Spectator provide some insight into how The Enchanted Forest was received:

This is a beautiful fairy story picture-book delightfully illustrated.

The artist merits the highest praise for her delicate, beautiful

drawings with their humorous touches.

 

British Weekly

 

Children will find the story charming, but it is really only a

thread upon which Mrs Outhwaite hangs a line of thirty-one

exquisite illustrations.

When presented on Greeting Cards, these images are prepared as tipped-on plates -

in hommage to the hand-crafted approach typical of prestige illustrated publications

produced in the early decades of the 20th Century. Each card is hand-finished and

the images are presented on Ivory card stock (in the case of colour illustrations) and

White card stock (in the case of monotone images) with an accompanying envelope.

The rear of each card carries information about Ida Rentoul Outhwaite, this

wonderful suite and the profiled illustration - we have left the interior of the cards

blank so that you may write your own personal message.

 

Should you wish to order a reproduction print of one or more of these images,

we have provided some options below. Each of our Fine Art Posters is prepared

with archival quality papers and inks - and also accompanied by information about

Ida Rentoul Outhwaite, this suite and the profiled illustration.

 

To purchase, simply click on the appropriate "Add to Cart" button and you will be

taken through to our Shopping Cart secured through PayPal. Multiple purchases will

be consolidated by that feature and shipping and handling costs to any destination
