Janet and Anne Grahame Johnstone

Janet and Anne captured the public's hearts from the 1950s onwards with their neotenized fairy tale illustrations. With such pretty and perfect scenarios, filled with cute children with rosy cheeks and oversized eyes they put their visual dream worlds into children's books and minds. My favourite picture of theirs is the one above because I love the relationships between all of the creatures, and how peaceful the children look. It's so enchantingly drawn, with lovely woodland colours and tenderness throughout.
