jip en janneke

These 1964 illustrations are taken from the book Oe! Een koe! (ISBN 904510219-6) which translates as Ooh! A cow! (but I think that Wow! A cow! retains the spirit of the original title). The author is Annie M. G. Schmidt and the illustrations are by Fiep Westendorp.

Jip and Janneke (the boy and girl respectively) are two little scallywags and a Dutch children's classic.

Wow! These are amazing! I love the contrast between the simplified kids and the detailed trees. Just wonderful!
