Milo Winter

I thought I'd write a little bit about Milo Winter, who is one of the artists from our new Fairies and Fantasies sets (Nuova in the bonus set and Fairy Queen being his work).  If you haven't seen the Fairy sets yet you can take a look at  http://www.printableheaven.com/section.php/1934/0

Milo Winter was American, born in 1888 and died in 1956.    He produced some lovely work for children's books including Aesop's Fables, Arabian Nights, Alice in Wonderland and Gulliver's Travels.

Here are some of his pictures from Nights with Uncle Remus by Joel Chandler Harris from 1917:-








Lovely, aren't they.  His fairy pictures that we've used in our new sets are also very special.  Will definitely be on the lookout for more of his work.
