Appreciating the Illustrations of Herbert Railton

October 7, 2011

Herbert Railton was a 19th century architect and illustrator. I was first exposed to him in the excellent pen and ink training book “Rendering in Pen and Ink” by Arthur Guptill. Some time later I found a reprinted copy of a book he illustrated written by Thomas Hood called “The Haunted House” and fell into further admiration for his deft handling of the pen.

You can search his name at Archive.org and find several books he illustrated. I recommend that all artists should study his work closely.
