LoveReading View on King Arthur and His Knights of the Round Table

September 2011 Guest Editor David Almond: "I still remember the moment I pulled this book from my Christmas stocking. I was seduced straight away by Lotte Reiniger’s wonderful austere illustrations, by Green’s magical prose, and by Arthur himself, an ordinary-seeming kid who sets the miraculous in motion by pulling the sword from the stone in such an offhand way. Wondrous stuff soon follows: earth-shattering battles, glimpses of Heaven, damsels in distress, enchanted knights, dragons, love, desire, treachery and sin. Bloody accounts of limbs being hacked off sit side-by-side with haunting descriptions of magic and miracle. The language is heightened, as it should be, but it never impedes the progress of these wonderful old tales."   

- Please note that this edition is illustrated by Aubrey Beardsley.


King Arthur and His Knights of the Round Table Synopsis

A series with silk-ribbon markers and headbands, gold stamping on front and spine, and the original colour illustrations on the jackets. This version of the legends of King Arthur was first published in 1953, and the illustrations are those with which Beardsley made his name in 1893, aged 20.
