Washington Irving's classic tale of romantic schoolmaster Ichabod Crane and his terrifying encounter with the Headless Horseman is given new life in this edition, featuring the richly detailed, one-of-a-kind folk illustrations of Will Moses.




About the Author

Washington Irving, one of the first American authors to earn his living from writing, was born in 1783 and died in 1859.

Painting is as much a part of the Moses family tradition as the family homestead in Eagle Bridge, New York. There Will Moses has painted since he was a little boy, learning firsthand from his grandfather, folk artist Forrest Moses, who learned from his mother, Anna Mary Robertson Moses, better known as Grandma Moses. Developing his own folk style, Will has become an internationally beloved artist in his own right, his work displayed in collections throughout the world, including that of the White House. His folk art can also be found in such books as The Night Before Christmas, Will Moses' Mother Goose, and Mary and Her Little Lamb
