This is where fairy illustrator Arthur Rackham lived.

Location: 27 Albert Square, Kennington

Description: A young Gothic illustrator called Arthur Rackham (1867-1939) lived here in his formative years. The blue plaque outside was unveiled by local actress Joanna Lumley on 7th July 2005.

Local children in fairy costume fetched Joanna from her home nearby to unveil the plaque. She said she'd grown up with Rackham's illustrations, which had help develop a love of fairies as a child.

Arthur Rackham lived here from 1882 to 1885 when he was a student at Lambeth School of Art (after previously being in the City of London School where he won prizes for drawing).

Arthur then spent 6 months in Australia before returning to enrol for evening classes at the Lambeth School of Art (now the City and Guilds School in Kennington Park Road).
