Willy Pogany – Tanglewood Tales 1909


William Andrew (“Willy”) Pogany (August 1882 – 30 July 1955) was a prolific Hungarian illustrator of children’s and other books. His contemporaries include C. Coles Phillips, Joseph Clement Coll, Edmund Dulac, Harvey Dunn, Walter Everett, Harry Rountree, Sarah Stilwell Weber, and N.C. Wyeth.

Here is another book illustrated by Willy Pogany, one of my favorite Golden Age illustrator. Tanglewood Tales by Nathaniel Hawthorne, first published in 1909 by T. Fisher Unwin, with many lovely colour and B/W illustrations. Pogany shines in his B/W illustrations, that I prefer  over his later watercolors, and here is some prime examples of why he’s figured among one of the best Golden Age Illustrators. Enjoy.
