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.

Essays of Elia, by Charles lamb, 1899, #8 of 100
Although floral compositions were most commonly used for illustrations, many of the staff were far more imaginative.
