I used to have a lot of children fairy tales books and I was always so fascinated by the beautiful illustrations, Unfortunately I got rid of them, but I still remember many of those illustrations. Yesterday I searched the internet to see if someone has uploaded some of those pictures but, unless you know the name of the obscure illustrator, all you get is Disney since that seems to be the standard. I love Disney, but that's not what I was looking for, not this time anyway. Via-via-via several websites I found the names of those illustrators (mostly Italian, I think) and then pinterest did the rest. This is not a very useful thread and I have nothing more to add, so I'll just post some of those pictures. Btw, if you're reading this and you still got one of those books, and you would be able to scan and upload some illustrations, that would be awesome. Many of those vintage children book's were released in different countries so maybe there's more that I'll recognize. The wolf, the witches and the evil stepsisters were my favourites (although most villains happened to be female) so those pictures were my priority. Snow White (And Who Cares About The Dwarfs) Sleeping Beauty And these, from another illustrator (Giovanni Benvenuti) Cinderella Red Riding Hood These images are really very old (1950s?) but they were reissued over and over again so eventually they ended up in a 1970s print.
