Lynd Ward illustrations for Beowulf

This post now resides on my other site 50 Watts:


  1. Ah yes, the post where I incurred the ire of Neil Gaiman. Serves me right for shooting my mouth off...

    Ward is amazing. His bold style suits this story better than just about any other illustrations I've seen.

  2. Holy cats, these are beautiful. $6? What mad fool would pass up their copy of this book, let along for so little? Gorgeous!

  3. Hi. I linked to your fabulous post--I'm a newbie and don't know how to do the tracking thingy.
