Same story, illustrated with three completely different styles. A CHRISTMAS CAROL is such a familiar story does anyone need to have it explained to them?
First, Roberto Innocenti, the masterful Italian illustrator, has done a very moody version, with his London of the 1840s looking historically accurate. (Except for the ghosts, that is.)
John Groth was a World War II combat artist and was art director of ESQUIRE magazine for many years. His 1962 version of A CHRISTMAS CAROL shows a fast, loose pen and watercolor style. I got these scans from the defunct Illustration Station blog.
Finally, this sharp satire is from HUMBUG #6, 1957, drawn by Arnold Roth. There is now a deluxe slipcased two-volume set of the eleven issues of HUMBUG. These scans are courtesy of Pappy, who posted them originally in 2007.
