Golden Age Illustration
image from ASIFA - go look + donate!
Boing boing is always filled with lovely stuff, DH reads it all the time. Today I did. What a bonus! There were links to the ASIFA project blog - a great non profit organization with a blog filled with more links to some of the most beautiful illustratons ever. As a child we had many books from my great aunt and grandmother filled with such illustrations. But there is way more here that I have ever seen anywhere else...
go have fun if you like this sort of thing! I am not a current Disney fan by any means. At all. sorry... i loved the really old stuff from them - but work like Kay Nielson from Denmark as seen above, makes me giggle with childhood delight. His work and others in the link, (scroll down a bit) are just my "cup of tea" and inspire me to no end.
