Exquisitely illustrated with images by Arthur Rackham and others, this definitive book of stories inspired by Arthurian legend includes detailed and fascinating notes on the provenance and development of each story. I really enjoyed reading this version of the story, and the illustrations make it even better. It's a lighter read than most books about Arthur but I still highly recommend it, it was a really great read.
