Echoes of Dunsany


[Click once, then again, for maximum satisfaction]

Isn't this a great illo? Years ago, I ripped it out of a magazine from the 1920's called COLLEGE HUMOR. You can see some great cover scans of that zine here:

I no longer have that issue, so all provenance for the picture is lost. Too bad....

It's by the amazing Franklin Booth. And I don't see it reproduced at any of the links from his Wikipedia entry.

Every time I study it, I fondly recall one of my favorite stories: Lord Dunsany's "Idle Days on the Yann."
