This story, 'The House That Jack Built', was was one of the first two books illustrated by Caldecott and was originally published in 1878 as part of Caldecott's 'Picture Books' series. These were published in pairs, every year, from 1878 until his death in 1886. Randolph Caldecott was one of the most important British illustrators of the Victorian period. He transformed the world of decorated children's books, with his delicate yet considered drawings and imaginative subject choices. Caldecott selected all the stories and rhymes he illustrated (and occasionally wrote) and frequently added his delightful style and humour to the stories himself. His delightful style and humour can still be enjoyed by young and old alike. Pook Press celebrates the great 'Golden Age of llustration' in children's literature - a period of unparalleled excellence in book illustration. We publish rare and vintage Golden Age illustrated books, in high-quality colour editions, so that the masterful artwork and story-telling can continue to delight.
