A Midsummer Night's Dream illustrated by W. Heath Robinson and Arthur Rackham.

It's summer solstice, and to celebrate the arrival of summer I thought I'd share some of my favourite illustrations of William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream (1600). It's usually the case that I prefer colour illustrations, but for this play the black and white illustrations really adds something to the magic. Here they are....
