Generations of children have gone "up in a swing, up in the air so blue" and to "The Land of Counterpane" with these timeless verses by a beloved author. Master storyteller and poet Robert Louis Stevenson evokes the delights, fears, and wonders of childhood in a memorable series of images and rhymes.
In simple, expressive language, the poet ponders the mysteries of home and the wider world — the nightly dreams of "The Land of Nod," the curious rustle of "Auntie's Skirts," and encounters with the changing tide "At the Sea-side."
This keepsake edition features 100 enchanting pen-and-ink drawings by noted artist Charles Robinson. The playful exuberance of Robinson's Art Nouveau-style images provides a perfect complement to this enduring classic.

This was the first of more than 100 books illustrated by artist and engraver Charles Robinson (1870-1937).  Robinson worked in the Arts and Crafts tradition and specialized in children's literature. A pioneer of modern book design, he was among the first to integrate drawings with text.
