A simply glorious production. Not only does this book contain most of Rossetti's best loved poetry it is especially appealing because of the lovely decoration. The illustrations have a mixture of influences, the Pre-Raphaelite period is represented by the use of warm rich colours and the art nouveau style is evident in the stylised line drawings. The combination works very well indeed.
