The Golden Key, A Victorian Fairy Tale by George MacDonald, Illustrated by Ruth Sanderson

I've got quite a library of MacDonald's books, and am not all that easy to impress, but MacDonald and Sanderson are a marriage made in the third heaven, as St. Paul would surely affirm. Breathtakingly beautiful hardly begins to describe this edition of The Golden Key; Sanderson' black-and-white scratchboard illustrations have the haunting quality of one's profoundest dreams.
