I am loving all the visuals here.
Unknown side of Lenica's work!!! Great.
Amazing as always! Question... where do you get all of these wonderful books? You must have an amazing collection!
Thanks for your comments.Emmy, I do buy way too many books, and from all over the world. Most of them aren't particularly rare, and would be passed over by a real "rare books" dealer -- lucky for us.
These remind me of Antonio Prohias:http://www.flickr.com/photos/ufdc/sets/72157607310434089/
Bleh, communistic propagadna.
Next time I go to Poland I will bring with me copies of the childhood illustrations that are in my attic. There are plenty that you would love. I am a big fan of your blogging, and being an illustrator myself often browse through it for the reference or sheer leisure. My favorites are Roland Topor, but also Dusan Kallay and Albin Brunovsky, that I haven't see here yet!(contact: exquisitemurals.info)
Novak, thank you so much for the Prohias link.Thank you so much for the offer to share your Polish children's books! There are definitely a few Brunovsky posts in the archives if you dig, maybe only one by Kallay...but he's coming!
