wardomaticIt's not often you get to come across an original spread of a children's book painted by a brilliant illustrator from the midcentury era. The artist: William "Bill" Dugan. Died just a month or two ago at the age of 92. And he was still working up until his passing.
- pencrushwow! that is amazing!
- uppercasemagWould love to know more about him...
- wardomatic@uppercasemag I've known about Bill since I'd been collecting vintage children's books, but there's not much out there about him. But I'm now in touch with a few who knew him and I can found out more. Fascinating backstory, I'm told.
- kelightThis is beautiful!!!
- heatherofjThat's really beautiful
- valentine14vpIt seems that animators/illustrators live long lives.... probably because they never really grow up😘
- wardomatic@valentine14vp That's what I'm hoping! 😊
- frothyfrothIllustrators that run have more fun.
- wardomatic@frothyfroth I'm hoping that, as well!

- wardomatic@vintagekidsbooks I plan on talking about Bill Dugan on my blog soon.
