Donn P. Crane

Donn P. Crane was one of the first of the fantasy artists in America. He did amazingly detailed and sophisticated children's illustrations, even though his medium was copper plate engravings and he didn't have the full color range to work with. He did extensive illustrations for the My Book House and the Journeys Through Bookland series.



We were honored to correspond with several of Donn Crane's grandchildren. It's clear that the family holds him in great respect. They still have many of the amazing copper plates he created.
