Which artists would you say are the most visionary out of these?:http://www.quora.com/Who-are-some-of-the-best-childrens-book-illustrators/answer/Rivka-Stein-1?srid=uxaKb
kay nielson , hanns binder, roberto innocenti, inga moorehttps://www.brainpickings.org/2012/08/27/kay-nielsen-east-of-the-sun-and-west-of-the-moon/
Thanks for the response.
You're right, most pop culture is trash. Toy Story for example is a shitty rip-off of Velveteen Rabbit, which is a masterpiece.http://digital.library.upenn.edu/women/williams/rabbit/rabbit.html
the author, margery williams was strongly influenced by walter de la mere, who now i think about it, he writes like you, strongly visual and a combination of hyper real and fantasy with a sense of horror !

Which stories or books of his do you recommend?Also, when I was younger, I experienced the world much like Inga Moore's illustrations. The way she uses cross-hatching in the luminescent backgrounds really adds to the atmosphere, creating a kind of boundlessness. She does a very good job with depicting diffusing light in the skyscape permeating the scenery with a kind of mysterious awe. She uses light as a way to subtly hint at limitless possibilities, and it thereby comes to penetrate the entire scenery.In a way, her artwork reminds me of one of your quotes: "A mysterious irradiance that permeates everything." I experienced life like this as a child, and I feel Inga Moore conveys this perfectly. The fact you were able to notice this really is starting to make me more sure about you being the 7thzenpatriarch.I have searched a lot for children's artwork that could capture the way I experienced the world as a child, conveying the sense of boundless I felt when looking at light in the forests I explored or the way it came into my room's window. After so much of searching, I found it with Inga Moore. I think she's my favorite illustrator now. I like Maxfield Parrish and Kay Nielson also, but I think Inga Moore is my personal favorite. Her artwork helped me understand my own childhood experience and your quote on a deeper level.
good post !henry brocken is walter de la mare's best book, but the events and imagery in it are built around other well known literaure, so you need to research as you read !http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/15432
