I’ve been trying to find out a little about illustrator Miche Wynants who worked on a number of books in the mid sixties, but apart from a hint that she maybe from Belgium, the internet came up a blank. : (  I think that her work, especially on Noah’s Ark is stunning.

Wonderful textures and rolling blues and greens in the stormy sea here.

These Lions are fab too and the brown and pink foxes with their extra loooong tails, are also pretty cool.

Here’s a couple of covers of other books Miche Illustrated.

I imagine that these exciting flip books would keep children amused for quite a while.

If anyone has any info or images of Miche’s work that they could pass on, I’d love to include them on my blog. Do get in touch, thank you.

      Many thanks for your email, how helpful. I did come across the Abebooks link and IBBY too, so I’ll see if they can help. Thanks again for your thoughtfulness.

    Good. Morning. I have just bought a copy of Noah’s Ark in great condition from a charity shop.
    The illustrations are just amazing.
    It was published in 1965 by Faber.
    Does anyone know if there should be a dust jacket with this lovely book ?
