A couple of weeks ago, I posted some of the illustrations from a eautiful books sent me by Bill Peckmann. Gustaf Tenggren’s Story Book is a big book with lots of chapters that take short pieces from some of the world’s most famous stories. Robin Hood, Heidi, Gulliver’s Travels and many others are all represented. Of course, to me the illustrations are everything.
Animation students don’t need to know who Gustaf Tenggren is. He was a Swiss illustrator brought into Snow White and Pinocchio by Walt Disney. He went on to create the Poky Little Puppy and many of the most famous Little Golden Books.
Here, then, are some more of these illustrations from The Gustaf Tenggren Storybook.
