From the middle of the 19th century, the book market changed significantly by the introduction of technical innovations. The rapid press allowed circulation numbers that revolutionized the reading habits of people lasting. New printing techniques and the introduction of color printing brought word and image together again. The book illustration developed into an independent art form. The literature responded to the emergence of the mass market with new forms, such as short story and serial novel. Walter Crane initially established himself as an illustrator in this mass market. His illustrations for children's book series, which came in the UK under the name "Six Penny Books" or "ToyBooks" on the market, reached circulation numbers of 50,000 copies. Cranes endeavor was in a handcrafted and artistically high-quality design of mass products.

Cranes educational path was unconventional. After he left school after a few classes because he "got on his nerves", he was taught by his father at home. At the age of 13, he started an apprenticeship as an illustrator. The artisanal basis shaped his conception of art. Crane is considered one of the outstanding representatives of the British Arts and Crafts movement, which wanted to reconcile crafts and mass production. This Crane was also a pioneer of Art Nouveau. Instead of returning to traditional art forms that shaped historicism, the Arts and Crafts Movement relied on the development of an independent modern style.

Crane was committed to a new art education for broad sections of the population and published relevant educational basics. Crane not only designed illustrations for books, but also worked in design. Here he created consumer goods such as wallpaper, tiles, glassware or patterns for tablecloths. The emphasis of the Arts and Crafts movement was on the reconciliation of art and everyday life in an industrial society. However, Crane exerted his greatest influence through his book illustrations. © Meisterdrucke
