Lancelot Speed

Lancelot Speed (b. 1860 d. 1931) was a famous Victorian illustrator of books, usually of a fantastical or romantic nature. He is probably most well-known for his illustrations for Andrew Lang's fairy story books.

Speed is credited as the designer on the 1916 silent movie version of the novel "She" by H. Rider Haggard, which he had illustrated.

He was also the director of a number of early British silent films.
