♔Rentoul Outhwaite-Witches

The wall is silence, the grass is sleep, Tall trees of peace their vigil keep, And the Fairy of Dreams with moth-wings furled. Plays soft on her flute to the drowsy world.

~The Witches of Ida Rentoul Outhwaite.

Ida Rentoul Outhwaite (June 9, 1888 – June 25, 1960) was an Australian illustrator of children’s books. Ida worked predominantly with pen and ink, and watercolour. Her first illustration was published by New Idea magazine in 1904 when she was just 15 years of age – it accompanied a story written by her older sister, Anne Rattray Rentoul.
