Kim W. Andersson (See link to the right. He's also working here in the studio.) showed me a stack of illustrated russian folk tales published by Raben & Sjögren in 1978.
And, wow!!! They were were just soooo beautiful.
Just have to share two of the illustrations with you.
Made by russian (?) illustrator I. Bilibin around 1900. Enjoy!
Let me know if you want to see more of this.
I'd be happy to post some other good examples from the same books.
