Lord Dunsany

The Book of Wonder

The Book of Wonder is one of Lord Dunsany’s many collections of fantasy short stories. While many of his collections were illustrated, this particular one is different — the illustrations were completed first. Dunsany then used the illustrations as inspirations for the stories around them.
