The Fantasy Illustrations of H.J.Ford

Selected and edited by Jeff A. Menges

《少女、怪物与英雄——H. J. 福特幻想插画集》

编写:杰夫A. 蒙格斯




Lang's second volume featured artwork by Ford and Lancelot Speed. As the series became increasingly popular, and as more volumes were released, other illustrators were dropped from the project. In 1891, with the Green Fairy Book, H. J. Ford became the sole illustrator, and he would remain so for the next nine volumes, over the next eighteen years. In this series alone, Ford produced a staggering number of images—more than 1,000—each volume presenting approximately 100 illustrations.


朗格的第二卷书由福特和兰斯洛·斯彼德配图。这系列书籍逐渐获得大众青睐,不断出版新书,于是这项目的其它插画家被剔除。到 1891年《绿色童话》出版时,福特成了唯一的插图作者,而接下来九本书都如此,这样的情况一直持续了 18年。仅仅在这一系列中,福特就创作出令人咋舌的海量图画—— 1000余幅——每一卷书大约包括 100张插图。


The relationship between Andrew Lang and H. J. Ford was mutually beneficial. There were few books in British children’s literature that were as popular as the “Color” fairy books, and the pairing was so successful that, after Andrew Lang’s passing in 1912, Longman’s, Green and Co. continued to publish works with Lang’s name—along with Mrs. Lang’s (she contributed greatly to the later volumes). Ford worked with Mrs. Lang on titles such as The Book of Princes and Princesses, The Book of Saints and Heroes, and The All Sorts of Stories Book . After World War I, with the resulting drop in book production and the Lang fairy books behind him, Ford found fewer assignments. His last book, issued in 1921, was an edition of Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress. Ford died in 1941, leaving a wealth of images deeply plated in the imaginations of a generation.

安德鲁·朗格与H. J. 福特之间是互利互惠的关系。英国童书史上少有能像“十二色童话”这么受欢迎的作品,这对搭档堪称珠联璧合,在安德鲁·朗格于 1912年去世之后,朗文和格林出版社仍然挂名朗格出版作品,同时包括对后续系列居功至伟的朗格夫人。《金枝玉叶》,《圣杰之书》和《千奇百怪故事书》是福特与朗格夫人合作的书目。一战之后书籍产量随之锐减,福特还有十二色童话在手,于是他接单的数量也减少。他的最后一本书,班扬《天路历程》的某一版本在 1921年发行。1941 年福特离世,留下了深植一代人脑海中的丰富画卷。

H.J. Ford是我人生的艺术启蒙者。这系列翻译来自前些天我买到的他的一本画集,所有作业里对这个最上心,也是完全用业余时间来做的事(别的有工作内容),愿意跟更多人交流学习翻译技巧、文字功底和英文水平,请多多指教!
