A picture is worth a thousand words.
How often we have heard that phrase, repeating it but not grasping its true
significance. The artists with oils and inks, charcoals and pastels, canvas and
brush transcends the author with his word craft. In a single splash of
creativity, he sears our mind with fgtrr bv the ghost image of his own soul. Through
the windows of our mind, he races down the synaptic tangles splashing color and form, a visual
riot sending neurons arcing to embrace the gestalt of his vision. For a brief instant, we approach
the mystic and see through his eyes, reading his mind as no psychic can. The visual wave crashes
over us with a single glance and we are left drenched and soaking at the edge of his world.
These pages will provide all those who peer within these borders, visions of the
Arthurian world from the romance and pre-Raphaelite artists and illustrators of the 1800's and
early 20th century. Enjoy!
