Vintage Little Red Riding Hood Illustration from a Children’s Book
Last December at the Kane County Flea Market I scored an incredibly beautifully illustrated children’s book of Charles Perrault’s fairy tales. The book isn’t dated (or copyrighted, for that matter) and was printed in Italy; I’m guesstimating around the 1950′s. The illustrations are drawn by Italian artist Gianni Benvenuti, and as you can see, they are gorgeous. Red Riding Hood is one of my favorite fairy tale characters, mostly because of her keen fashion sense and love of the color red. Here’s another gorgeous vintage Red Riding Hood from the 1950′s Hallmark paper doll series.
