It was an overnight sensation that unequivocally established Dulac's reputation."The Arabian Nights illustrations caught the attention of all the contemporary reviewers. The October Bookman published Dulac's portrait with the prophetic caption: 'those fifty colour illustrations for The Arabian Nights will soon be the talk of the literary and artistic community'.Recognition also came from Black & White magazine.'A new illustrator has arisen, and of the strength and originality of his work there can be no two opinions'.The London Times followed. : 'Mr. Dulac's distinction is that he is as good on the poetical side as on the grotesque.he has a truly exquisite sense of colour, and of noble design.'."At the time, Edmond Dulac was only twenty-five years old.Hughey 16tt.
