Arthur Rackham’s Illustration of Ichabod Crane
The Legend of Sleepy Hollow has always been my favorite harvest-pumpkin-Halloween story; and no one illustrated it better than Arthur Rackham.
Filled with Rackham’s skeleton-like trees [the Wizard of Oz Apple Trees are surely somehow linked to Rackham’s incredible trees],
the Rackham-illustrated version of Sleepy Hollow has a unique feel to it. The text alone is very descriptive; but when Rackham’s illustrations are teamed with the text, Washington Irving’s Legend of Sleepy Hollow literally springs to life.
