The son of a craftsman, Harry Clarke was exposed to art (and in particular Art Nouveau) at an early age. His first printed work, in 1916, was Fairy Tales by Hans Christian Andersen, a title that included 16 colour plates and more than 24 monotone illustrations. This was closely followed by an illustrations for an edition of Edgar Allan Poe's Tales of Mystery and Imagination: the first version of that title was restricted to monotone illustrations, while a second iteration with 8 colour plates and more than 24 monotone images was published in 1923.
