Laurence Housman publishes The Blue Moon, Engraved by Clemence Housman

Decorated, wood-engraved title page for The Blue Moon

The Blue Moon is the last collection of fairy tales on which Laurence Housman and his sister Clemence Housman collaborated. Laurence wrote and illustrated the tales, and Clemence engraved the images. “As proof of the extraordinary minuteness and accuracy of her engraving,’ Laurence recorded in his memoirs, “I would instance her illustrations to my book of fairy-tales called The Blue Moon” (“Materials and Notes”).
