Henry Justice Ford (1860–1941) was a prolific and successful artist and illustrator active from 1886 through to the late 1920s. Sometimes known as H. J. Ford or Henry J. Ford, he came to public attention when he provided the numerous beautiful illustrations for Andrew Lang’s Fairy Books which captured the imagination of a generation of British children and were sold worldwide in the 1880s and 1890s.
I found Perdita from Shakespeare’s ‘Tempest’ and Miranda from ‘The Winter’s Tale’ illustrated by H.J. Ford in volume three of The Home University Bookshelf from 1938. This volume was called Folklore, Fables, and Fairy Tales and has many beautiful old illustrations which I’ll be posting here soon.
