New Edition of Goblin Market by Christina Rossetti

Goblin Market

Goblin Market by Christina Rossetti is a new release from Dover Books.  Of course, this is an old text, easily found on the internet to read, but the book does what Dover does best, offers reproductions of Arthur Rackham's illustrations for the story.

Book description from the publisher:

This lovely hardcover gift edition of Christina Rossetti's most famous poem will enchant readers of all ages. A captivating adventure into a land of fantasy for children and a sensual allegory of temptation, sacrifice, and salvation for adults, it features 4 color and 20 black-and-white images by Arthur Rackham as well as a reproduction of a rare Rackham watercolor.
So, if you love Rackham and Goblin Market, this is the book for you.  You can read more about Goblin Market itself on Wikipedia, of course, where links to the story are also available.
