So by chance I remembered that there was an antiquarian book fair taking place yesterday at the Union at U of M. I dragged my sister to it and proceeded to spend a little past what I was allowing myself to spend. But can you really blame me [that's rhetorical]. I picked up a couple of books illustrating Napoleonic soldiers along with a couple of illustrated story books. Of these last two, one jumps out and has indeed made itself my new obsession. As far as illustrators go. The book is The Brave Little Tailor and is illustrated by Olga Dugina and Andrej Dugin. This duo has worked on only 3 other books, The Fine Round Cake, Dragon Feathers, and Madonna's the Adventures of Abdi. There is also a large selection of illustrations from an Arabian Nights collaboration that I don't believe has come out yet, on their website. Here are a couple of images from the Brave Little Tailor.
