Lord Dunsany page
Edward John Moreton Drax Plunkett (1878-1957)
British Fantasy author
Lord Dusany has been an inspiration to my artwork since my teenage years. I have a nice collection of several of his first editions, including the ones with illustrations by Sidney Sime, and almost everything he ever published, autobiography, novels, plays, and short stories. These illustrations are from the 1970s and 80s, all unpublished.
At The Edge of The World;The Long Porter
all these illustrations are to the short stories.
A Shop in Go-By Street; Knitting a cloak of gold and green for a king that had been dead a thousand years.
A short story about a man who works out how to fly a bi-plane to Mars
This is Hothrun Dath, following the Way of The Graves
The Fortress Unvanquishable...
Idle Days on the Yann
The Sailors kneeling on the deck to pray,each to their own Gods
This is the dragons name, not the title!
