picture book illustrator Walter CraneThe Peacock's Complaint from Walter Crane's Baby's First AesopWalter Crane was an artist and a children's book illustrator, perhaps the children's book illustrator of his time. In many of his books, the author isn't even credited (or known), though he often worked from classic and traditional texts and sometimes even did the writing himself. He was a painter who also did much work in crafts (like ceramic tiles), yet clearly still found time for moustache and beard grooming. :-)

Crane's work is noteworthy for the extreme amount of detail and information conveyed visually. We here at Best Children's Books appreciate him for his use of strong black lines! That means we were able to create reasonable reproductions of his work electronically. We wouldn't have been able to afford the artist who could reproduce his detailed work by hand!
