"The Golden Goose" Illustrated By William Stobbs (published by Bodley Head Ltd, 1966) - Part 3



Every panel in this book could be a painting in its own right. Wonderful use of the medium, rich colours and textures. William Stobbs (1914-2000) is one of my favourite picture book artists - I've got one more book by him which I'll be featuring soon on this blog (see also "Jack And The Beanstalk" http://picturesfromanoldbook.blogspot.co.uk/2011/12/jack-and-beanstalk-written-by-walter-de.html ). There is an extensive collection of Stobbs' children's books on the Fishink blog: https://fishinkblog.com/2013/02/13/william-stobbs-a-childrens-illustrator/

"In The Garden" Devised By Peter Usborne, Illustrated By Derek Collard and Pace Studios (published by Macdonald and Company Limited, London 1974)



Three very funny and quirky illustrations from this 70's educational book I picked up from a charity shop recently by Derek Collard. Not much information on the artist I'm afraid but here's an other interesting example of his work from this blog: http://illostribute.com/tag/derek-collard/
