Forgotten Illustrator - Jaroslav Serych 1

This post now resides on my other site 50 Watts:


  1. Hi, thanks for your nice blog and the way you make the pictures available. I received the "tales from Japan" as a gift when i was about 10 years old... It was so beautiful i still have it 30 years later :) (btw, the one i've got is the french edition).

  2. I got "The Dragon King's Daughter" this afternoon at a thrift store for $1. The illustrations have the appearance of being painted on a coarsely woven linen.

  3. Hallo,

    Looking through my childrensbooks, I wondered who Jaroslav Serých was, and here I found the answer. Thank you so much. I love his paintings in "The Dragon King's Daughter" , which is translated also in Dutch. I am 60years now. I won't throw this book away as it gives me such happiness looking in it.
