Howard Pyle

The other day I noted that Howard Pyle is one of my favorite illustrators. Here are three of his works. The first is from a book he both wrote and illustrated, Otto of the Silver Hand (1888). The others are illustrations from his pirate stories that were collected in Howard Pyle's Book of Pirates (1921).
