My Illustration Archives #1: Jiří Trnka

Over the years I have created an extensive collection of beautifully illustrated children's books, mostly from my native country, former Czechoslovakia. Some of them are quite old: some are beginning to deteriorate, some are no longer being published, and others are just beginning to fade from our memories. All of these books deserved to be remembered and hold a special place in my heart. So from now on, I'll be posting these illustrations weekly. I hope you'll find them inspiring!
