Welcome to Rare Robin


We specialise in Imaginative illustrations, both books and original drawings. Whilst the UK has produced many great children’s books and many wonderful artists/illustrators, it is not the only country with such talent. To enrich this opening page we use an illustration by the great Swedish artist, John Bauer. Denmark, Norway, Germany, Spain, Italy, France, USA etc, all have fine illustrators and we are proud to offer a good selection in our frequent, well illustrated catalogues. Contact us to go on our mailing list & receive our catalogues.

This website will show a selection from the interesting drawings and watercolours we have for sale, mainly British. We have many more drawings and given time we will post many more.


We are pleased to use this site as an introduction to the bibliographic work that we enjoy doing. There are links through blogs for Willy Pogany & Anne Anderson to start with, we will add others in due course. We have an extensive archive, some 10,000 records which we are happy to share & welcome fresh information.
