"Fabulous Beasts" (??) illustrated by Tatiana Mavrina, 1965

It's been quite a while since I posted any children's book illustrations so I thought I'd look for some with a Spring feel. Tatiana Mavrina's award-winning work fits the bill perfectly.
New-to-me polny-shkaf has an inspiring site, well worth keeping an eye on if you like vintage books.

I also spotted one of Tatiana's illustrations on Irina Troitskaya's Tumblr, found through another interesting book link.


  1. Beautiful! I love the 3rd, 5th and 7th.
    Great find!

  2. Happy Easter, dear Deborah! Love that fox, of course;)

  3. my daughter loves foxes - I'll have to send the link to her too! love the illustrations - happy eater!

  4. Very lovely, I am really fond of her folk art inspiration!

  5. Great quirky illustrations!
