I don't know who did this one!



These two are from Tenggren's Golden Goose Golden Book!





The rest are J.P. Miller!










I hope you all enjoyed these as much as I do!

there's this place that I work at, a maternal centre, baby care-type thing place. Seeing Tenggren's stuff, reminded me that a while ago I saw a whole bunch of golden books in some storage space under the stairs there. They had Tenggren's stuff there. Something ith elephants, perhaps?

I can't help but want to steal them all. I don't think anyone ever touches them. Despair...

Beautiful! These guys had oodles of style, didn't they? Rojankovsky might be the most amazing of all the illustrators from that period. But I guess you know that.

BTW, I love your new signature-photo. But please leave it the same for a while. What is this about constantly changing stuff? Dern this younger generation anyhoo. Mutter mutter mumble.

I'm taking that as a challenge. Lemme work on that...

And speaking of picture books:

Anthony Browne.

Anyone a fan of this guy's stuff?

It's not in the same vein as these guys you posted, but it's damn great. It's all in the mood, atmosphere in his pages. Surrealism, if you dig it.

eeeeeep! Look how cute the little boys jeans are in that Mel Crawford one. (Squeeks in high-pitched voice)

Hi Kali

I think that Sleeping Beauty puzzle might be Mel Crawford too. The form in the tree and the style of brush strokes looks like many of the books I have of his.

That Mel Crawford is incredibly striking.

You poor dear. You can't change your photo without causing a ruckus!

NEATO!!!

Why can't the Cartoon Network outline-less shows look this good?

This actually looks like a human made them with care.

I love the cowboy and the 'coon best.

Kali, your new picture rocks.

Kali Fontecchio said...
