Reinterpreting Lost Art - Surrealism and 19th Century Art

I recently purchased a 125 year old childrens story book. It was filled with some pretty amazing pen and ink art from the 19th century. Most of the artists and the art are lost to the world. But I have a fascination with them and often collect books from the 18th and 19th century and try to reinterpret the art within them. So here you will find my interpretations of various books in my care. Enjoy!

L'Illustration Nightmares (Taken from L'Illustration Journal Universel 1871)
