some more children book illustrations from the seventies created by italian illustrator SEVERINO BARALDI. in all his work I admire the most his knowledge of costumes throughout the different styles of the past centuries. and he always adds some phantasy elements that make the characters look like the actors on an opera stage. his technique is very interesting as well, the use of all his textures was in those pre-photoshop times a bit more complicated. it looks like he worked a lot with a sponge technique, as well as added color pencil on a rough cardboard surface.
