Alas, I think that Pip's week of vintage children's book illustration is over. I still have some more pictures to show though, so perhaps I'll make it a week's worth of vintage children's book illustrations spread out over however long it takes me ...

As a child, I really liked this book, Allumette (ISBN 0590078453) by Tommy Ungerer from 1974, but now that I look at it again the illustrations actually appear to be quite gruesome.

I found Ungerer gruesome but fascinating even as a child! And I love the refashioned cardi and your rationale for refashioning, which I share... an occasional but fond passerby of your blog, Mary
