1001 Riddles by George Carlson

1001 Riddles by George CarlsonTerry Beatty writes:

I wrote about 1001 Riddles for Children in one of my studio tour entries, noting that it was one of my favorite books from childhood — and in searching through my storage boxes, I discovered I had an extra copy — so I’ll be letting one of them go — but not before sharing some of the illustrations with you.

I’d guess that most comics fans first heard of George Carlson from Harlan Ellison’s essay about him and his Jingle Jangle Comics in All in Color for a Dime — but I knew of Carlson from the beat-up crayon-marked copy of this book that was part of my childhood library. That particular copy is long gone — but it seems I replaced it in my collection twice!

Check out the extensive collection of the illustrations here at Terry Beatty’s blog:
