John Archibald Austen (Dover (Kent), 5 January 1886 – Hythe (Kent), 27 October 1948) was an English book illustrator. His early works, including a fine Hamlet, were Beardsleyesque in style, but after 1925 he was influenced by the Art Deco movement. Books which he illustrated in this manner include Daphnis and Chloe and As You Like it. Austen used several techniques in his illustrations, including wood-engraving and scraper board, and changed styles to suit the text he was illustrating. He was also involved in advertising, producing adverts and several posters. He was a friend of Alan Odle and Harry Clarke and exhibited with them at the St George’s Gallery in 1925.

A selection of his works can be seen and appreciated and seen at ;
