Henry Justice Ford is best known for his collaboration with Andrew Lang on a popular series of twelve “Color” fairy tale books published at the turn of the twentieth century. The artist and the folklorist also worked together on books with setting ranging from the Middle Ages through the eighteenth century, including The Red Book of Animal Stories and The Book of Saints and Heroes. H. J. Ford’s other works include The Book of Princes and Princesses, Tales of Troy and Greece, The Strange Story Book, The Arabian Nights Entertainments, and Introduction to American History.

H. J. 福特最为人所知的作品是与安德鲁·朗格合作的“十二色童话”,这套在十九、二十世纪之交出版的童话系列广受欢迎。这对画家与民俗学者的组合共同完成的书籍取材跨度从中世纪到18世纪,包括《动物故事红皮书》和《圣杰之书》。H. J. 福特的作品还有《金枝玉叶》、《特洛伊与希腊传奇》、《怪谈故事》、《一千零一夜趣谈》以及《美国史概论》。


Editor and graphic artist Jeff A. Menges, who provides an informative commentary, assembled this dazzling gallery of Ford’s heroes, supernatural creatures, saints, and historic figures. Many of the compilation’s images—rarely seen since their original publication—appear here in their original full-color splendor. Art lover and book collectors alike will rejoice in this treasury of imaginative illustrations.

INTRODUCTION

Henry Justice Ford grew up in the heart of the Victorian age. He was born in the environs of London in 1860, and spent most of his life there. The visual work he produced would have the input and support of Britain’s Victorian painters, including the Pre-Raphaelites, and he became part of –and influenced—the Golden Age of illusion. Ford’s fairy-tale illustrations are some of the best known and most frequently reproduced works of the period.

亨利·贾斯蒂斯·福特长于维多利亚朝盛时。1860年他诞生在伦敦市郊,并在此地度过了人生大部分时光。他的创作受到了英国维多利亚时期画家的影响和支持,包括拉斐尔前派,而他也成为插画黄金时代影响深远的一员。福特的童话插画是该时期最著名、再版次数最多的作品。
