Walter Crane is chiefly remembered as a children’s book illustrator. The artist, born in Lancashire in 1845, created many classic designs for books of nursery rhymes and fairy tales. Crane was a committed Socialist, and believed in the importance of bringing art in to the daily lives of people from all social classes. Following an apprenticeship as a wood carver, he expanded his practice to include designs for plaster relief, tiles, pottery, stained glass, wallpaper and textiles. His wallpaper designs incorporate such diverse themes as swans, bulrushes, fairy tale themes and emblems of English patriotism in to the complex patterns.
