darchildre: children reading books in a field. (books are for adventure!)
[personal profile] darchildre
Today, my family has been cleaning out our storage unit, in preparation for no longer having a storage unit. In doing so, we found one of my favorite childhood books, that I thought was long lost or given away - Folktales of the Amur.

Oh my god, you guys - first of all, the stories are great, and I very much look forward to revisiting them. But the illustrations are the best part. The art is by Gennady Pavlishin and it is amazing. I will give you just two examples, but I invite you to google for more, as it's amazing.


This is the more stylized art style used for the stories about anthropomorphic animals. The fox shows up in a lot of those stories, and she always looks just that awesome.


And this is the style used in stories about people. Seriously, the whole book is like this.

I am so excited to have this book back, I cannot even tell you.
