Nadir Quinto



Nadir Quinto - Sinbad the Sailor

Nadir Quinto (1918-1994) was an Italian artist, born in Milan.  As with the other artists already featured in this blog he was extremely versatile, working as both a cartoonist and illustrator.  From the mid 50's to mid 60's he contributed to a number of English publications such as Treasure, World of Wonder and Look and Learn.  The illustrations included here are a selection of my favourites and are taken from various issues of the children's magazine Once Upon a Time.

Nadir Quinto's style as an illustrator suits these paintings perfectly, combining clean lines, clear colours and an exquisite attention to detail.

Trinity College Dublin - Spring Flowers

This tree in Trinity College's 'secret garden' is one of the loveliest sights of Spring.  The blossoms only last for a couple of weeks in April but are a magnificent sight while the tree is in bloom.




Another picturesque part of the college in Spring is the path leading towards the Campanile. The magnolia tree always makes me think of a fountain of flowers.

My goodness, how did you get such clear, high-res illustrations? They are beautiful. I love book illustrations and I have quite a number posted on my personal web site: reader.homestead.com. Check it out.
