There definitely appears to be more mid century book covers aimed at boys than girls. These Polish ones are lovely, I really like the two little guys in the tree.

A book about being a chimney sweep, not so much of a profession these days but again fab illustrations.

    Hello Craig! What a lovely post! It always makes me super happy and proud seeing some Czech illustration work on your blog. Can you mention Jiri Trnka or Jiri Salamoun’s work sometime? Love Marta

      Thanks for the reply Craig! I think you might also like Miroslav Hanak’s work, he did beautiful illustrations of animals and wild life.
