John Bauer (1882-1918) was one of the most appreciated Swedish artists and illustrators of the early XX century. His artwork, contemporary to those of Pamela ?Pixie? Smith, brought to life a world of sweet and dark myth and folklore, where fairytales blend with pre-raphaelite influences. John Bauer died at the age of 36 in the Lake V??ttern, in his beloved Sweden. 78 full colored cards & instructions.
