W. H. Walker (British, late 19th – early 20th c.)
 
"W. H. Walker (active 1905–1915?).  Whereas W. H. Walker can be connected to few children's books of the period, the contribution he made to the Alice canon has had lasting merit.  The brightly colored palette of his Alice illustrations make them quite distinct without burying the draftsmanship of his fine line drawings."  - from: Alice Illustrated: 110 Images from the Classic Tales of Lewis Carroll  by Jeff A. Menges, Barry Moser, Mark Burstein - 2011
 
In addition to being one of the first artists to provide illustrations for 'Alice in Wonderland' after the expiration of Lewis Caroll's patent, W. H. Walker also illustrated other children's books, including: 'Tales of Jack and Jane' (1907); 'Fairies I Have Met' (1907, cover); and 'Nightcaps for the Babies' (1908).
