My Favourite Witches of All. What's Yours?

love alters not when it alteration finds 

The quote above is from Shakespeare and to me it means that true love will always remain regardless of the changes that life brings.

My enchantment with the illustrations of Arthur Rackham has 'altered not' since I was a small child! 
For me, he really does create the best witches of all, in fact it wouldn't surprise me to learn he invented them! ;)
Shall I remind you how fantastic they are?









He's the master of witches isn't he? Or do you have your own favourite witch artist?

 I'll love to know!

my favourite ever witch artist is Patricia Coombs who wrote and illustrated the 'Dorrie' series about a little witch! They are my favourite books of all time!
