"Fairyland Annual 1969" Stories By Joan Fisher, Illustrations By Hutchings (Published by The Hamlyn Publishing Group Limited for Odham Books, 1968)


 
Now, it's a mystery to me who this illustrator "Hutchings" might be - a man, woman or a team of artists - but the work is amazing. Here's a link to another fellow blogger who came across exactly the same problem! http://fishinkblog.wordpress.com/2011/02/08/searching-for-hutchings-in-1969/ His book is called "Nurseryland Annual 1969" ("anything...land" seems to have been quite a trend with Odham Books in 1969) and signed Hutchings. We will probably never know the artist's full identity but we can surely enjoy the pictures...
