My favourite version of The Night Before Christmas is illustrated by Gyo Fujikawa. I just absolutely love her artwork- especially the way she draws reindeer with spindly delicate legs. I also really like the colours she uses and the softness of the illustrations. To me these pictures are just beautiful. Unfortunately I was unable to scan any of the double page spreads as I don't have an A3 scanner but I think you can still see the beauty and detail of the illustrations from the single pages I have copied.
What do you think of them? Are these illustrations your cup of tea? Or do you have your own favourite version of 'The Night Before Christmas'? I'd be interested to know- I always love to discover new books!
