Arabian Nights Images - Will Hillenbrand

Will Hillenbrand is the illustrator for The Tale of Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, retold by Eric A. Kimmel, published by Holiday House, New York, 1996. I guess this would be called a picture book, since there are pictures on every page. The pictures are in color, and have an interesting sort-of primitive style.

Left is a detail from a scene where our friend, called Marghana in this version of the story, goes into town. I like the cat coming around the corner.

Right is Marghana doing her dance.
