Joseph Schindelman's Illustrations

Unread postby DeppInTheHeartOfTexas » Thu Mar 10, 2005 7:21 pm

In Question #2 (I think it was) the discussion turned to the different illustrators that had worked on Dahl’s story. I realized that my copy is the one with the illustrations of Joseph Schindelman. I scanned a few that I thought were very representative of his style. Just click on the links below to see them:

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming -
Wow! What a ride!

Thanks for posting those, DITHOT. I prefer Quentin Blake's illustrations, though. They are much more VIVID, as it were.
You can't judge a book by its cover.

The only thing that matters is the ending. It's the most important part of the story.

Thanks, DITHOT! My book has Quentin Blake's illustrations, too. They are a bit wackier. It is nice to see another artist's take on the book.

You are most welcome. :-) I prefer Blake's as well but I think the contrast is interesting.

Guess I will disagree with the rest of you -- for me the Blake illustrations are a little too cartoony. Garish? :-? The Schindelman drawings are probably a little more traditional, reminding me of books that I had and treasured as a child. I had some warm comfortable flashbacks looking at his pictures.
