Garth Williams original art scans

The illustrations by Garth Williams for the children's classic, CHARLOTTE'S WEB, were auctioned off by Heritage Auctions. I love these illustrations; which are nostalgic to me. Seeing scans of the original art is inspiring to artists and illustrators, as well as fans of children's book art.

I have included the amounts listed as winning bids by Heritage.

$155,350 (Price included dust jacket, two watercolor roughs and web design endpapers)

























  1. Haven't looked at those pictures in decades, yet looking at them now brought back total recall. I devoured that book as a kid.

  2. In one of those moments of synchronicity, the day after posting this I was in a thrift store and found a copy of a later edition CHARLOTTE'S WEB, a book I have read, but in a library copy. So now I own it.
