THE ILLUSTRATORS
SCORES OF ILLUMINATORS WERE EMPLOYED AT THE ROYCROFT, BUT ONLY A FEW WERE CONSIDERED ADEPT; EXPERT ENOUGH TO BE ILLUSTRATORS. THEY WERE ALLOWED A GREAT DEAL OF LEEWAY, AND ARTISTIC FREEDOM WAS ENCOURAGED. SIGNIFICANT VARIATIONS IN THE STYLE OF ILLUSTRATIONS CAN BE FOUND IN DIFFERENT COPIES OF THE SAME BOOK.
