August 2020: 175 years since the Birth of Walter Crane
English artist and illustrator Walter Crane (15 August 1845-14 March 1915) was one of the leading representatives of the Arts and Crafts Movement.
Also a prolific children’s book illustrator and a political activist, he created a number of iconic images associated with the international Socialist Movement.
Although not himself an anarchist, Crane contributed to several libertarian publishers, including Liberty Press and Freedom Press. He is credited with the design and decoration of the front facade of "The Bomb Shop", Henderson's bookshop at 66 Charing Cross Road, London specializing in left-wing and radical literature.
