Harry Clarke

Harry Clarke (1889-1931) was an Irish illustrator and stained glass artist. He was a leading figure in Irish Arts and Crafts Movement.
I'm fascinated by his works lately. I have Poe's book with his illustrations and I find them outstanding. I could stare at them forever! There's so much detail and everything is drawn with such a precision. Have a look at his works.

 mostly these are illustrations from Poe's books.

And some stained glass windows.
