The Sleeping Beauty. Told by C.S. Evans and Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. London: 1920. First edition.

"Like his Cinderella (1919), The Sleeping Beauty relied "almost wholly for its effect on silhouette. Rackham was a master of the medium, being able to evoke character and humor by profile and gesture alone, and allowing the two-dimensional effect of his pen work to lead the reader through the book and keep the story going" (Hamilton, 118).
