Kosuke Ajiro


I have long admired the work of Japanese illustrator Kosuke Ajiro, in this new work 'Po to Pou' she is deliciously dark and surreal. Kosuke has constructed tiny scenes and then animated them into a gem of a film, with all of the magic of primitive animation and handcrafted surrealism. Not Red Riding Hood, but included here for its sinister content and feasting wolves.

Chap Book 1810




This version of Little Red Riding Hood, published in a small, hand-coloured chapbook in 1810 is in the British Library. It sticks closely to Perrault’s original, and predates the Grimm brothers’ version by two years.
