Yeah, that's my kind of thread.

The blue eyed cat {or something like that in english}. It's an old one, but I'll never forget the wonderful illustrations and the good history.




Peddersen and Findus. I love these Swedish books with the funniest and most exiting illustrations.




Calvin and Hobbes. Great.




The Lion heart brothers. The whole story is just... beautiful.





The story of the little mole who... this book is so funny, sweet and good. How can you not love it?





The Donald Duck stories by Carl Barks. I'm pretty obsessed about the way of telling world history and much more through comic books. And I still find these comics very exciting (and of course I like the drawings).





More coming up. I love children's books. Both my parents are librarians :p

And now I see that it's all about the illustrations and not the stories. I'm obviously not that quick

Somehow I managed to completely miss this thread! It's lovely.

She illustrated most of Annie M.G. Schmidt's books (which have a special place in my heart, as they have a lot to do with how I learned to read Dutch):

How I loved Jip & Janneke! I was always bragging that I was able to read those books at only 6 years old (it was legal, because I wasn't lying)
The noses in her illustrations are funny

^ Jip and Janneke are adorable, but I haven't actually read any of the books - I find them to be somewhat, ah, beneath my reading level (I started to read Dutch 4 years ago). Although I do appreciate their numerous appearances on various Hema products.

My favorites are Pluk van de Petteflet (natuurlijk) and Otje:

Oh really? :p
I was called the Jip & Janneke kid in school (6 years ago ) as I had everything, from shampoo to hairpins with Jip & Janneke prints, people like to confront me with it. I still have a little red handmirror that I keep in my night table

That wiener-horse is hilarious!



What a nostalgia trip

Golden Age Illustrators Gallery
Hi,

I've created a site decicated to my favorite children's book illustrators and have managed to scanned over 500+ illustrations from my rare books collection. I want to do justice to those great illustrators, therefore all scans are only from either the first edition, or the limited edition to preserve the original colors. Some of the illustrators are: Rackham, Dulac, Jessie M. King, Kay Nielsen ...
You can access the frontpage at http://www.nocloo.com or go directly to the gallery http://www.nocloo.com/gallery2
Enjoy ! Comments and suggestions are welcome.

Kind regards,
-Minh Lai
