HARRISON, Florence

(1877 - 1955)
"This is Romanticism as it was meant to be"

Born in Brisbane, Autralia Florence Harrison worked most of her life in the UK with books published by Blackie & Son.

 She wrote and illustrated number of books of verse, often on a fairy theme, Rhymes and Reasons (1905), Rhyme of a Run (1907), In the Fairy Ring (1908) and Elfin Song (1912). Her drawings are vibrant, richly coloured and characterised by a strong black outline around the figures. 

Among Florence Harrison's most sumptuous books are three volumes of poetry commissioned by Blackie as Christmas Gift Books. Christina Rossetti's Poems (1910), Tennyson's Guinevere (1912) and The Early Poems of William Morris (1913). In these volumes Harrison's use of deep colours and Art Nouveau style drawings are shown to their best advantage.
