Synopses & Reviews
One autumn day, Rip Van Winkle wandered into the hills, and his life was never the same again. After encountering a group of mysterious men, he took a nap so long that upon waking, he found his gun rusty and his beard grown a foot long!
Washington Irving's classic tale of the man who slept for twenty years, first published in 1819, was masterfully interpreted in 1905 by Arthur Rackham. The art for this book established Rackham as the leading illustrator of his time. This deluxe edition beautifully reproduces 31 of Rackham's exquisite watercolors, making the perfect gift for all ages.
