Favorite Fairy Tales Told in Russia, Herbert Danska

 Today's vintage children's book, Favorite Fairy Tales Told in Russia, features work by an artist that I am not familiar with. While I don't have any information on this artist for you, a quick search took me to Leif Peng's blog, Today's Inspiration and a post he did back in 2007 showing some work by Herbert Danska. To view that post, click here

I found another post on Danska by Greg Allen at daddytypes, to view that click here.

  1. I do like your blog Jil, and the more I search for illustrators, the more it pops up lol We're definitely on the same page there :) You must have a great collection of books too. Hope this finds you well and carry on the great work

  2. Oh I stumbled across that book in the library, last year when I was researching imagery for a Russian story I was illustrating. Very inspiring... a great find!!
