* children’s books

Posted on November 19th, 2004 by maitreya. Filed under Crafty Links.

I’m usually not so in to memes, but I’ll make an exception for the children’s book pictures one this week. Princeton just recently had a fantastic exhibit of children’s book, including a Salvador Dali Alice in Wonderland, among many other discoveries. Oh, I have so many favorites it’s hard to choose: Tasha Tudor, Quentin Blake, John R. Niell and W.W. Denslow (the Oz book illustrators), Johnny Gruelle (Raggedy Ann and Andy), Arthur Rackham, Jan Brett, Richard Scarry, Beatrix Potter, lots of others. Great websites with lots of illustrations:

    hi, who was the illustrator for that picture entitled ozma? do you have any other details on it at all that you could send me?

  3. Panda Susana Says:

    I LOVE this version of Ozma. I have most of the old hardback (not first ed. or anything) Oz books with this generation of illustrations. I even try to like that band Ozma, just for the name. Hooray for you!
