This website is designed as a basic introduction to the life and work of fantasy artist, Charles Altamont Doyle. The resources on this site include books, articles, websites and even movies. Because Doyle is not a famous artist, it is particularly difficult to find a single comprehensive source of information about him. This website is an attempt to remedy that problem. It will serve as a map, guiding users to relevant information.

This website is introductory enough to be used by any manner of audience. However, it was created with students, scholars, and researchers in mind. It will prove particularly useful to researchers interested in Victorian art, faerie illustrations, or fantasy art. However, it will also attract students of "Dicky" Doyle and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
