Today on Time Travel Tuesday, let’s take a look at the story Tales of Uncle Remus by Joel Harris. Produced in 1979, the characterization, funky shapes, and bold color combinations immediately caught my attention.
The problem with Tales of Uncle Remus is that the entire tale is in Russian. I don’t know any Russian! But, I can glean that Uncle Remus is the fox-looking character and he is either the keeper of the peace or an instigator of trouble. Readers that understand the language, help me out!
The book’s format is rather narrow, so the illustrations are all spots, with no robust, full-bleed scenes. But, the drawings themselves though are pull of pattern and color and stand on their own.
